May is a very special time in the garden as, for the first time since last year, we see the leaves return to the trees as the garden fills out with colour and fragrance.

Spirit of Trebah

A limestone sculpture remembering Tony and Eira Hibbert and Carolyn Brodie has been unveiled near the Visitor Centre by family members in conjunction with Trebah Garden Trust.

Created by sculptor Reece Ingram, who has a number of works within Trebah, the piece is now permanently on display as you enter the garden.

Support Us with Donor Trees

Trebah's Donor Tree scheme began in 2006 and since then over 107 trees have been adopted within the garden.

The scheme is a way for people who love Trebah to sponsor a tree and help support the future of the garden. Money raised from the scheme goes towards planting of the garden, ensuring its development in the future.
