That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

–   Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Antony Woodland Garden has Bloomed into Summer

Summer is the perfect time to explore Antony Woodland’s pink and blue hydrangea-filled glens and glades, which all lead down to the beautiful shores of the Lynher Estuary. This July, we are celebrating a bumper yield as the mild Cornish weather helps produce the garden’s biggest and most colourful crop to date.

Hydrangeas flower from mid-July to late autumn or sometimes even as late as Christmas. Their signature, vibrant blue or pink colours are determined by the acidic soil in the area.

While many gardens in Cornwall celebrate their peak colour season during spring with the beginning of Camellias and Rhododendrons, Antony’s Woodlands are also able to host a variety of seasonal plants which keeps the garden looking bright and varied throughout the year.

If you ever find yourself in South East Cornwall by the River Lynher in the summertime, a visit to Antony Woodland Garden is a must-do. Nestled along the estuary, this enchanting garden offers a serene escape into nature’s beauty. Upon your visit, you’ll be greeted by the splendid sight of hydrangeas and gunnera plants in full bloom. The vibrant hues of the hydrangeas contrast beautifully with the large, dramatic leaves of the gunnera plants, creating a picturesque scene that is truly unforgettable.

As you wander through the garden, the serenity of the river estuary provides a peaceful backdrop to the colourful flora that surrounds you. The gentle rustle of the leaves, the delicate scent of the flowers, and the picturesque views all come together to create a sense of harmony and tranquillity that will soothe your soul.

Whether you’re a nature enthusiast, a photographer, or simply someone seeking a moment of respite in the midst of nature’s splendour, Antony Woodland Garden is a hidden gem that is sure to captivate your senses and leave a lasting impression on your heart.
