The kitchen garden, Trengwainton Garden, Cornwall

The Kitchen Garden in June at Trengwainton Garden, Cornwall

The 200-year-old walled kitchen garden at Trengwainton was built to the supposed dimensions of Noah’s Ark.

There's a section entirely devoted to pumpkins – black, red and orange. There's also an allotment section, where vegetables and salads are grown in meticulously straight lines, and a container section where you'll find fruit plants growing out of old wellington boots. 
 
For little ones, the kid’s community garden helps young visitors see the process of plot to plate.
