Some of the above are considered to be The Great Gardens of Cornwall - these magical Cornish gardens are home to a wealth of the most exciting, rare and beautiful plants and trees in the British Isles. With the foresight of the early nineteenth-century Cornish garden owners, and their passion to own their own unusual and exotic plants, the great Victorian plant hunting expeditions were inspired and sponsored and enabled the sights that we see in Cornwall today.
