Default The Idyllic Island of Tresco Garden Tours November 2011

If someone told you they were off to a paradise island of quartz sands, sub tropical flora, surrounded by translucent turquoise seas, you would be forgiven for thinking they were jetting off to the Caribbean. But this particular island is actually just 28 miles from the Cornish coast. Tresco in the Isles of Scilly is totally unspoilt, basks in a balmy climate and is renowned as 'England's Island of Flowers'. Indeed the climate here is so mild that spring comes early, autumn stays late and winter hardly exists at all. Even in winter there are 300 plants in flower in the Abbey Gardens and as each day lengthens more and more exotic flowers appear. Autumn is a stunning time to visit the Isles of Scilly with the beautiful golden, reds and ambers of the seasonal foliage against a backdrop of proteas, aloes and flowering camellias thrown in for good measure.

Truly a sub-tropical paradise, this tiny corner of England has remained unpolluted and unchanged for decades. The wonderful Abbey Gardens is home to more than 3,000 species and magnificent vistas, colours and scents. There is certainly no other garden like this in the world and we will be privileged to learn of the garden's hidden secrets past and present with personally guided tours and lectures.
