April 2024 Newsletter

Trebah is full of colour at present. The wettest spring on record and above average temperatures in recent months might be challenging for us, but at least the plants here are really enjoying it.

If you’ve not visited recently I highly recommend doing so soon to make the most of the spring display.

Have you found Whose Nose Goes?

Our new Easter trail is off to a flying start and it's been great to see families exploring the garden (albeit between the showers) during the school holidays.

The trail continues until Sunday 14 April, so there's still plenty of time to enjoy it (plus there's a tasty locally-made prize from Josh's Chocolate at the end!)

£3 per participant, available from the Entrance Desk
