The garden

Snow on rosemary in front of the house at Trerice

Between the showers of rain, sleet and the occasional flurry of snow the garden at Trerice is stepping into spring ready for opening on 3 March.

It’s been a cold and wet winter but it hasn’t put the team of 20 year-round garden volunteers off! They’ve pruned and planted their way through the Trerice garden ready for opening in the spring.

1500 bulbs were planted in November and December and the fruits of their labour are already beginning to show. Snowdrops have been peeking through the frost and snow since mid-January and the daffodils started to join them not long after.

New paths have been laid around the barn and undercroft, giving a wider walkway when the grass gets a bit too wet underfoot. The potager has also been refreshed with the beds redesigned into a new pattern that mirrors the beautiful fencing.
