A garden habitat which has been established to attract wildlife is appropriately the finale for Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Open Gardens scheme this year.
The old farmhouse and about nine acres of land at South Bosent, Dobwalls, were bought around six years ago with the express idea of creating an interesting garden which would attract wildlife, alongside a small plant nursery. It was a case of seeing which wildlife would adopt the garden as their home, and already it has attracted birds, insects, butterflies, moths, and bats.
Visitors can see this for themselves on Sunday 1st September when the garden near Liskeard is open from 2.00pm to 5.00pm. Admission is £5 per adult, with under 16s free. Cream teas and beverages will be provided by Roddas, Berrymans, and Cornish Coffee and served on the large terrace area outside the farmhouse kitchen. There will be plants for sale. Dogs on leads are allowed and there is limited disabled access.
