Meet our Head Gardeners

12th Oct 2022 11:00am

Our garden experience includes a guided walk around the Minack led by Head Gardeners Jeff and Claire, who will explain the unique challenges of our cliffside gardens and how they manage the harsh conditions allowing our plants to flourish. There will be lots of hints and tips on coastal gardening and drought tolerant planting along the way and plenty of time for questions. 

Rowena Cade created the Minack Theatre to sit harmoniously within the landscape of Cornwall.  Since the 1990s we have been gradually developing the Minack gardens to showcase an extraordinary variety of plants that thrive on the side of a Cornish cliff. Our gardeners think of the Minack as a series of raised beds and are delighted to have this opportunity to share their wealth of experience as Chelsea Gold award winners.   

This experience will be two hours long and will end with a Cornish cream team in our café.
