As an eco-garden for growing cut flowers the Cornish Cutting Garden in Releath stands out as being very different to gardens which normally open for Cornwall Wildlife Trust. It has also broken the mould of a traditional cutting garden through the use of shrubs, climbers and garden flowers not usually seen in the cut flower market.
The garden in Vellanusun, Lower Releath, is open on Sunday 7th July from 2.00pm to 5.00pm as part of Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Open Gardens scheme this year. Admission is £5 with under 16s free, dogs on leads are allowed. Refreshments will be available with cream teas and beverages provided by Roddas, Berrymans and Cornish Coffee.
Cornish Cutting Garden is a social enterprise company that supports biodiversity, eco-therapy and education through creative engagement. It is a contemporary garden that strives to provide both a haven and a hub based around cut flowers and foliage.
