About the gardens

An opportunity to see two very different, modestly-sized enclosed gardens. The three owners have between them over a 100 yrs of professional horticultural experience.

 9 Higman Close, Dobwalls,PL14 4LW

Gardeners Jim Stephens & Sue Martin

A restless, constantly changing, unapologetically busy garden, full of good plants but also colour, scent and surprises. Sue’s glasshouse is overflowing with cacti and succulents, some over 35 yrs old.

DIRECTIONS: Situated approximately 3 miles west of Liskeard – From double mini-roundabout in Dobwalls village take road to Duloe, take 2nd right onto Treheath Road, then 1st right into Higman Close.

Dove Cottage, Lantoom
Dobwalls, PL14 4LR

Gardener Becky Martin

Replanted from scratch in 2017 showing what can be achieved in 5 yrs. Separate areas with different types of planting. Emphasis on colour. Narrow winding paths, shady pergola, deck with tropical planting, tiny sunroom, lush foliage area.

DIRECTIONS:  Do NOT use postcode for SatNav.  In Dobwalls village at double mini roundabout take road to Duloe, about 20 metres after end-of-speed-limit sign turn left at the football club.  Follow concrete track to property.
