The UK’s first tea gardens thrive in a unique climate thanks to the 18 metre deep sea creek of the River Fal.
Tregothnan pioneered tea growing using their botanical know-how, creating an international home for truly English tea!
The Tregothnan garden has a unique microclimate for growing tea and provides the perfect conditions for hundreds of plants and shrubs that you wouldn’t expect to see growing in England – banana trees, avenues lined with tropical ferns and eucalyptus groves boasting many different species native to the southern hemisphere.
Tregothnan has been protecting and cultivating the Wollemi Pine, which until 1994 was believed to have been extinct, with the oldest fossil being dated back to 200 million years ago.
Add to this a record-breaking Camellia Maze and a Chinese pagoda engulfed in some of the world’s largest Rhododendrons and you have a botanical experience unlike any other.
