Many Cornish gardens belong to the National Gardens Scheme who publishes The Yellow Book each year which is a guide or 'bible' to garden visiting. Most of these gardens are privately owned and only open on specific days. Lots of our gardens have tremendous interest in the Autumn such as Ellis Gardens at Polyphant, Wave Cottage at Lerryn, Half Acre at Boscastle, Primrose Farm at Skinners Bottom and Kennall House at Ponsanooth. The Homestead close to Helston is 7.5 acres and has a Wildflower Wood with over 1000 trees and a further 800 trees for a shelter and wildlife habitat.
