Open Gardens 2021

Discover wildlife-friendly gardening and support Cornwall Wildlife Trust at locations across Cornwall

Open Gardens showcases wildlife-friendly gardens across Cornwall to our green-fingered supporters. Discover something new at each garden, with owners taking new and innovative approaches to wildlife gardening. You can also enjoy our volunteer-baked cakes and take a piece of gardening inspiration home with you from our plant stall. Open from June - September 2021, our gardens are a great way to connect with nature and raise vital funds for Cornwall Wildlife Trust. 

Open Gardens is kindly supported by St Eval, Rodda's, Cornico Coffee, Tarquins Gin and Cornish Orchards.  

For details on each garden, click on the events below. No booking is required for the gardens, simply turn up on the day!

Upcoming Events

Thanks to the commitment of volunteers and garden hosts, Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Open Gardens series raises much needed funds for our work, securing over £20,000 in 2019 alone. Due to the pandemic, these funds weren't raised in 2020, putting the future of our work at risk. We're hoping to bring Open Gardens 2021 back in style with a brilliant programme of 9 beautiful gardens to explore.

If you can't make the gardens but would like to help protect Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places you can do so by making a donation today.
