THE acclaimed gardens at Trewidden will open as planned this spring despite the loss of a large number of mature trees in the storms.

More than 20 trees fell or 'hung' themselves in neighbouring trees, giving head gardener Richard Morton and his team plenty to do before the scheduled opening on March 3. Fortunately none of the 'champion trees' for which Trewidden is known has been damaged; indeed, the Trewidden Belle, a champion magnolia Campbellii tree, has become the first of the champion magnolias in the great gardens of Cornwall to come into full bloom this year, despite the stormy weather.

The gardens will open from March 3 to September 21.
