Plant and garden centre
Tucked into part of the former fruit garden on the side of the shop is the plant and gardening centre.
There's a range of seasonal plants and everything for the green-fingered, from tools and ornaments to decorations and garden furniture.
As the season progresses and the weather is warmer, it's a great time to add colour and interest with summer plants in the garden.
This year there's an even larger range of seasonal plants on sale including summer flowering perennials; veronica, salvia, and lupi in a range of colours, and ornamental grasses to add foliage and texture. All sourced from Lanhydrock nursery and grown with peat-free compost.
Rhododendron 'Fragrantissimum' with spicily fragrant white flowers up to 10cm across is on sale and can be seen growing in the garden. Another fragrant plant is Daphne bholua ‘jacqueline postill’ which will provides interest during the early months of the year. Why not plant it near your house and enjoy the fragrance every time you pass by?
Whenever you buy from the plant and garden centre you are helping to preserve this special place for future generations.
Wendy, Sales Consultant suggests that you look in the garden here at Trelissick to see where the gardeners have planted particular plants, to get an idea where the best place is to plant at home, for example whether they are shade or sun loving.
Wendy has a tip for some instant, easy to plant colour: 'Why not plant a pot full of bulbs by your front door to add some instant impact and colour. Place drainage such as broken pieces of old ceramic pot or stones at the bottom of the pot and use peat- free compost. Tease roots out gently, put the plant in and tap the compost down gently, then water well and enjoy.‘
