June is an exciting month in the garden with growth well under way and the gardeners busy planting the annual borders and ornamental potager. A few years ago an American Prairie planting was created it is one of only a handful outside America and contains 70 species grown from seed at Cambo. To see the prairie take the path through the Woodland Garden beyond the Potting Shed. Although only the first sprinkling of flowers appear in June, do go and have a look.
A quirky setting to start or finish your visit to Cambo – or just the place to meet a friend or find a special gift. Open daily 10.00 am to 5.00 pm
Good home baking, nourishing soups and light snacks, a comfy seat and friendly staff. Why not try one of our famous snowdrop biscuits?
Few can resist a tempting array of plants for sale – whatever the season – and snowdrop bulbs are seldom off the menu! See them in the garden, then see them in your own!
If you can’t see what you want – tell us – we may be able to propagate it for you.
