Cornwall gardens

Hi, we're on our now annual holiday in Cornwall. We usually go to the Lost Gardens of Helligan on one day but looking at the 2for1 website there are a lot of gardens near St Austell. We've already been to the Eden Project and the Duchy of Cornwall nursery. Any recommendations for other gardens near here? Thank you

    Depending where you are in Cornwall, you could always just nip over the border into Devon and visit the RHS garden, Rosemoor. I highly recommend it

    Thanks Ladybird. We're in Lostwithiel, near St Austell. I limed the sound of Rosewood (never having been to an RHS garden)  but at just under an hour and a half to get there that is too much for hubby ' just to see a garden '. It's an idea I'm sorting for the journey back north though

    Couldn't make out if that is a little jealous emoticon or one about to be sick. Just to clear things up I am using it as a green jealous one!
