The 30 acre Pinetum Park & Pine Lodge Gardens, comprises gardens within a garden, which hold a wide range of some 6000 plants, all of which are labelled. In addition to rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias - so familiar in Cornish gardens - there are Mediterranean and southern hemisphere plants grown for all year round interest. The water features include a large wild life pond, an ornamental pond with cascades, a lake with an island, home for black swans and waterfowl, and marsh gardens. Trees are also a speciality with an acer glade, a collection of 80 conifers in a 4 acre Pinetum, an Arboretum and an acre Japanese garden. A new 3 acre winter garden has been added.
Pinetum Park & Pine Lodge Gardens is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"Open all year round, this Cornwall treasure trove of plants is the result of the labours of Ray and Shirley Clemo who scoured the globe collecting plants and seedlings that they could cultivate back in the UK. There are now more than 6,000 labelled plants to explore. Wander down to the lake where a pair of glorious black swans reside amongst the ducks. The expansive pinetum creates a theatrical arrangement of conifers and pines while the Japanese Garden echoes the lovely Kyoto Gardens where Ray and Shirley got their inspiration."
