East meets West in the creation of the Japanese Garden! This attraction, a former small-holding in the picturesque village of St Mawgan, is close to the north Cornish coast. A little off the beaten track, the nursery is hidden away at the bottom of the lush Vale of Lanherne not far from the centre of this charming village.


It includes bonsai cultivated in the nursery and also imports from as far as Japan, Korea & China. The owners have been cultivating trees in open ground here since 1986, and adding these to the stock of bonsai imported from the Far East. This helps to offer a diversity of choice of plants available.


The nursery holds some twenty thousand trees plus; including a wide selection of indoor and outdoor varieties, a substantial number of starter-trees [various sizes/ages] ready for styling, and a good selection of specimens, some of which are placed amongst the general stock whilst others are housed apart in a special display.


Japanese Maples are a speciality of the nursery, and are available in a wide range of varieties and prices, as are tools and scissors for tending bonsai plants.


The Japanese Garden Bonsai Nursery is open all year, 7 days a week (closed 25th Dec - 1st Jan).


Opening times: 10am - 6pm [5.30pm winter] Last entrance to Garden 5pm.


Notes: Wheelchair access is an important consideration in the design, ensuring access to most of the garden and nurseries (95%+). A variety of seats within the garden also allow for frequent rest stops.
