Our Gardens

Rhododendrons Penryn CampusThe campus grounds at both Penryn and Falmouth Campuses blend historic sub-tropical planting with newly created landscapes to create visually stunning gardens that are a haven for a diverse range of plant and animal species.

Our award winning Tremough Gardens at Penryn Campus are open for all to enjoy. Visitors can take in the walled garden, herbaceous beds, sub-tropical planting, fruit producing orchard, Italian garden and terraces, the 18th Century lime avenue, parkland, the old drive with pinetum native woodlands and the historic rare Rhododendrons, cultivated on the site in the Victorian era. Meanwhile, in Wood Lane, the Falmouth Campus’ sub-tropical planting blends seamlessly with Fox Rosehill Gardens.

Come and see for yourself the gardens that won14 first prizes, and the coveted Chamber of Commerce Silver Cup for shrubs and flowering shrubs, at the 2016 Falmouth Spring Flower Show.
