First visit to this garden and the Hellebore sale appealed. More information on the website would have been useful. For example: no parking on site for this day; only cash accepted for plants and tea/coffee. It was a Charity Day for Shelterbox, so there were...More

A group of 20 of us visited Bosvigo - with some very keen plant loving members of the group, They were absolutely delighted -the owner is incredibly knowledgeable about plants.

Definitely not worth the £5 entrance. Owner was very abrupt. When asked if she was "the lady of the house" replied "yes" and walked past me into her house and locked the door - I heard the clunk. There was not a smile, welcome or...More

I absolutely adore hellebores so made the 2 hour trip down to Bosvigo. Well what a disappointment when you get there. The small gardens are pretty and the colours of the hellebores dotted around are the most lovely shades. It would be worth the drive...More

Don't bother to go early in the season, there is hardly anything to see. The plant sales were closed. A tiny so called woodland walk was more of a shaded area, very small and certainly lacking a woodland. No information to indicate that the garden...More

There are only three quite small areas to this garden, which do not warrant the £5 pp entrance fee. The court yard garden and the hot bed garden were very colourful but the vean garden looked quite neglected. Although plants were advertised as being for...More

Really lovely carefully thought out garden with lovely use of colour in the planting and lots of nooks and crannies. It is small but you are likely to be the only visitors and at it is a lovely experience if you take your time wandering...More

Four friends all over 60 visited this garden today. It costs £5 each which goes in an honesty box. A map is by box but is very hard to follow however it only takes about 10 mins to see it all. The box is inside...More
