The Gardens at Enys offer a unique tranquil and unspoilt experience.
Within the 30 acre gardens lie the open meadow known as Parc Lye, where the spring show of bluebells is breath taking; the ponds, where the waterwheel can be found; the flower garden, which is gradually being restored to its former glory; a New Zealand garden, which reflects J.D. Enys’s plant hunting interests, and many woodland areas, which show different types of planting including many remarkable trees.
As with any garden Enys is a work in progress and this year you are likely to see many changes due in part to the need to clear Rhododendron ponticum. We have gained a large area through clearance of ponticum around the chilean laurel and this will be gradually replanted. We lost our iconic Monkey puzzle tree to honey fungus and have suffered some storm damage over the past years, together with other Cornish gardens. Our paths have come off the worst for wear and we have had to put down gravel to enable access.
