Q – Where can I go that is open to the public to see lots of different types of camellias growing?

A – If you can make the journey, one of the best places are the outstanding gardens at Trewithen in Cornwall. They have recently been awarded the honour of becoming an International Camellia Garden of Excellence. It is a private garden, open to the public, that has long been associated with nineteenth century plant hunters like George Forrest. Trewithen Gardens also have a plant centre where you may be able to find exactly what you want for your own garden.
