Alex Ramsay has illustrated many fine books on Gardens of Italy and elsewhere written by his partner and Boxwood tour leader, Helena Attlee. This new book written by Katherine Lambert features many of the superb gardens to be visited in the upcoming April tour of Exotic Plants & Gardens of the Cornish Riviera. The Cornish peninsula is famous for sheltered gardens harbouring collections of magnolias, camellias, palms, tree ferns and many other ‘exotic’ plant groups. We take you behind the scenes to find out more about the specialist collections that thrive in Cornwall with special tours arranged to focus on particular plant groups with Head Gardeners willing to share their secrets for successful propagation & cultivation. We avoid the ‘honey pots’ and in so doing discover a vibrant new collection of gardens & nurseries off the beaten track. You stay at The Meudon Hotel, a haven of beauty and peace where guests enjoy comfort, fresh local cuisine, and traditional, unobtrusive service, all set in magnificent hanging gardens sweeping down to the sea.
