Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) has once again secured a variety of gardens across the region to open throughout the spring and summer to help raise vital funds for the charity.

Many gardens are opening for one-off days however Lanterns Garden at Mylor Bridge will be opening daily from 11am until dusk throughout the year to support the charity.

Lanterns Garden is jungle-like with closely packed mature plantings in a sheltered valley and has paths which wind around its streams, springs and raised beds. There are over 70 camellias, around 40 azaleas and many other unusual, established trees and shrubs to enjoy throughout the year.

Alice Merrett, community fundraiser for CHSW, said: “We are really excited to have so many fantastic gardens opening their gates to our supporters this year and we are especially lucky to have Lanterns Garden opening daily throughout the year.

"Our Open Gardens are a great way for people to see gardens not always open right on their doorstep while supporting their local children’s hospice – Little Harbour.”

Entry will cost £3 for adults, £2.50 for seniors and under 16s are free when accompanied by an adult. The garden is in Restronguet Hill, Mylor Bridge, TR11 5ST.

Trees, shrubs, herbaceous and conservatory plants grown at Lanterns will be on sale each day. Parking at the garden is limited, dogs are welcome but unfortunately there is no access for wheelchairs due to steps.
