There is a wonderful assortment of model gardens at Trago Mills,
I first visited these in 2009; I have to say that six years on
they are still a sight to behold.
This is 'The Environmental Garden', where the creators have made use of
old things: tyres; a tin bath; a garden roller; old sinks; an old washing machine drum
and bits of old iron.
The 'Devon Scene' serves to remind visitors where they are
with the old Devon thatched cottage standing alongside
a river, with clapper bridge.
'Canal Street' has a row of houses each with their own pretty
frontage, facing a canal with an appropriate green barge,
bedecked with geraniums etc.
'The Railway Children's Garden' is lovely and
depicts that old scene which we all love...
not forgetting the brown and cream signal box.
And the 'Cornish Seaside Garden' is lovely too...
If you fancy something a bit more formal then
'The Italian White Garden' is for you.
Or there's the 'Four Seasons Garden' complete with pool...
For more perfumed surroundings then 'The Sensory Garden' is top notch
and not only pleasing to the nose but also a visual delight!
A visit to the model gardens at Trago Mills is a must!
