Trerice is now closed during the week with the garden and select rooms in the house open on weekends until 23 December. Closing during the winter allows the garden team to crack on with the hard work it takes to keep our garden growing.

In early November the team began planting bulbs for opening in the spring. 2000 bulbs, including daffodils, snowdrops, bluebells, tulips, and alliums are planted with 15 tons of mulch to control the weeds and add nutrients to the soil.
