Places to Visit in St Austell, Cornwall
The Eden Team merge fabulous horticulture with art, science and education to tell stories about us and our world. We need to find a balance between growing plants to meet our needs (and wants), and conserving the land worldwide. The plants in the Outdoor Biome come from all over the temperate world, including parts of Asia, America and the upper slopes of tropical mountains as well as Europe. Cornwall’s mild climate helps. Yes, the green shrubs down to the left, near the giant wooden leaf, really are tea bushes. So come on in and explore, outdoors and in.
As well as the plants we hope you will like our collection of celebratory silk flags, inspired by various plant forms at Eden and designed, made and planted by Angus Watt. The entrance to the covered Biomes is via the link bridge between them.
