FBF: The Secret Gardens of Cornwall with Tim Hubbard

Esteemed broadcaster and author Tim Hubbard takes us behind the scenes of the best horticultural locations in the Duchy.

Tim Hubbard reveals twenty of Cornwall’s lesser-known gardens in a new book - The Secret Gardens of Cornwall - which is launched at Falmouth Book Festival. 

Sumptuously illustrated, the book also tells some of Cornwall’s garden history, and Head Gardeners offer hints and tips to everyone. In conversation with Jacqui Owen, an expert on Falmouth’s free public gardens which are featured in the book, Tim will be telling the stories of the landowners, seafarers, gardeners and plant hunters who have made Falmouth and its gardens such an important horticultural location.  

Tim provides some personal and practical insights too: discover what grows well, when and where to visit, and find out about his own new clifftop garden facing out across the Atlantic Ocean.

'A glorious celebration of some of the finest gardens in a county whose climate makes them especially breath-taking. 'Alan Titchmarsh
