Further Explorations in Cornish Gardens
Peter Kendall
Portland, Oregon

Recently, I conveyed something of my experience in the gardens of Cornwall by touching briefly upon three premier woodland gardens - those of Trebah, Glendurgan and Penjerrick (see the Spring 2000 issue of the Journal). As noted, each was brought to fruition by a member of the talented Fox family which long held sway in the area.

My peregrinations through the Cornish countryside led me to the grounds of yet four other notable woodland gardens. Three of the gardens were proximate to the delightful fishing village of Mevagissey where I found accommodation in a charming bed-and-breakfast for the better part of a week. Each of the gardens bore its own special attractions.
