Glendurgan Garden, Cornwall

View across garden from the west with the cherry laurel maze in the forground at Glendurgan Garden,

With its mild climate and sheltered valleys, the amazing plants of Glendurgan take on new features in the autumn months.

Southern hemisphere plants burst into flower, while the jungle-like leaves of giant rhubarb and bananas reach full size. As low light filters through the woodlands on the valley sides, the leaves and trunks of trees take on fascinating shades of autumnal colour.

Venture down to the beach to skim stones or watch boats drift by.
