Open Gardens

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. Normally, you can also enjoy our volunteer-baked cakes, and take a piece of gardening inspiration home with you from our plant stall.

Due to coronavirus and observing government advice, all our scheduled Open Gardens are postponed for 2020. In its place we are offering the Online Open Garden Series to give you a taste of what the gardens have to offer! If you’d like to register your interest in future Open Gardens events and be notified when a garden is added to the Online Open Gardens Series, please sign up below.

We will be speaking with with those who open up their gardens for the fundraiser so you can 'visit' digitally! As the date comes around for when each garden was meant to be opened to the public, a link will appear below for you take a virtual visit. Expect a Q&A, photos, hints, tips and a video (if possible) via the Online Open Gardens Series!

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 are unlikely to be raised in 2020, putting the future of our work at risk. Please help protect Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places by making a donation today.
