Mike Nelhams, Tresco Abbey Garden

"The garden is ever changing, and we adapt and change with it, always hoping to improve."

  1. The Abbey Arch in Tresco Abbey Garden
    The sub-tropical Abbey Garden is a glorious exception; a perennial Kew without the glass, home to 20,000 plants from more than 80 countries, flourishing just 30 miles off the coast of Cornwall. The plants that thrive here wouldn't survive outdoors anywhere else in the UK.
