The Lodge

Bodmin

3-acre riverside garden some 20 yrs old specialising in trees and shrubs chosen for their flowers, foliage and form, embracing a Gothic lodge remodelled in 2016. Magnolias and camellias, prunus and pieris, azaleas and rhododendrons, paulownias and viburnums, with cornus, davidias and stewartia later. Recently extended water garden with sculptures. Looks like a late spring here will give an abundance of colour in April; alas not much in flower in early March, but maybe daffs and some of the camellias will oblige to complement the lovely riverside setting. Feel free to check: 01208 821431.

    Early April sees more than 20 magnolias in flower, with camellias, daffodils and primroses everywhere. Later come the yellow magnolias, prunus, drimys and pieris. May is for azaleas and rhododendrons, still more magnolias, paulownias, viburnums and carpets of bluebells. Later and into June the cornus are in full bract, especially Norman Hadden, Satomi and many Kousas, with perhaps the first davidias too, followed by styrax, stewartia, philadelphus, geraniums, roses and herbaceous favourites. All of this in an informal setting, surrounding a Gothic former lodge by the Glynn estate.
