LAMORRAN GARDEN VISIT Wednesday 22 June 2022

The Garden safari Group had a beautiful June day to visit the gardens at Lamorran. They were met by the head gardener who gave them a talk about the history of the family-run garden explaining how they have developed it over the years. It was a very hot day but the group were shaded by the lush green vegetation. The garden is in an amazing position from which visitors can take in views of the Roseland peninsula.

Powderham Castle Garden Festival on Friday 29 April, 2022

What a great day we all had! The weather was excellent and it really made the day as everybody sat out relaxing, and eating from the many food outlets.

 There was lots to see and do. Members bought plants and there were various talks going on throughout the day. We sat in on a talk about the history of Devon Landgirls.

I would like to thank both Fiona & Rob Sneyd for their kind hospitality in letting us visit their gardens at their home at Coldrenick, Menheniot. 

We  had a very pleasant guided tour by Rob Sneyd & his two gardners, Lizzie & Murray, around their beautiful gardens. 

The last time any of us had visited the garden, must have been about four years ago. We certainly noticed a big difference to the landscaping & trees that had since been planted. Rob amused us with his continual challenges with the rabbit & deer population who love his tender young plants that he is growing. He explained how each generation of his family had improved or added new dimensions to the grounds.

The afternoon ended with a lovely tea & cakes supplied by Fiona. The weather was kind to us so we ate outside on the patio.

 Our final donation of £100.00 was given to them for their charities. We would also like to thank each of you for your kind generosity.

Best Wishes,

Pauline, Barbara & Paula

Members had a wonderful day out at Greenway in Kingswear, Devon recently.
