About the garden

If you want to see layering systems and companion planting in action and learn about the benefits of the no-dig movement then you’ve come to the right garden. With more than 30 year’s experience, The Forest Garden proprietor Simon Miles is well placed to teach you his tricks of the trade, the result of which is this productive and prepossessing site near Falmouth.

Everything that grows at The Forest Garden is edible, has medicinal use or a practical purpose. And as this low maintenance but high impact method of growing uses no pesticides or herbicides, wildlife flourishes.

At the nursery, visitors weave among a patchwork of fruit trees, including Cornish apple trees, Asian pear trees and cherry and nut trees before alighting at perennial plants, vegetables, herbs, which are grown with gardeners in mind. Wondering what to do with your inevitably large, leafy haul?

The Forest Garden also provides forest gardening courses and consultancy and design services for gardeners looking to replicate what they’ve seen here. You’ll be putting your green fingers to good use in no time at all.
