July brought us a Mediterranean summer that will live in our memories for many years to come and the garden has flourished, revelling in the warmth that stretched into the dusk.
Ednovean Farm's garden throughout the year
Follow the sub tropical gardens and courtyards at Ednovean Farm though the season in our monthly garden diary. Each month I take fresh new photos to share with you and share our garden projects.
The June garden settled gently into the early gentle misty rain of the month, elegantly following the season to meet the brilliant sunshine that dawned on the day of the summer solstice. From then on we tumbled head first into those endless summer days that memories are made of, days that sent the temperature gauge […]
Hello!! Well this May I suddenly realised that it was nearly summer and I was still “in” spring mode so we had a flurry of editing and replanting the courtyard pots whilst in the wider garden we’ve been rescued by the wildflowers and the heady mix of formal and informal has never been more beautiful […]
There is an air of anticipation for the day ahead now, as I step outside the door each morning and spring settles sweetly over the garden. We’ve had to work much harder this spring, to put out garden back on track for the year but at the same time, it has been deeply satisfying to […]

The Ednovean garden in the far south west of Cornwall that has become my friend, litmus of emotions, reflection of dreams and hard taskmaster. This blog will follow the year in […]

This November, as the year changes from autumn into winter, my garden diary is […]
I would like to say October’s garden diary was full of golden mellow days but two gales scorched through the gardens this month in quick succession, reorganising our carefully planned gardening schedule into one long raking session. This October we’ve had time to finish clearing the hedge in the Italian Garden and resurface the car […]
