Built on a series of terraces, this famous garden, favoured by a temperate climate, is home to over 20,000 exotic plants from over 80 countries, including South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America and the Mediterranean. Even at the Winter Equinox more than 300 plants will be in flower, so it could be said that Tresco is Kew without the protecting glass - a horticultural world tour enclosed in 17 spectacular acres.
The garden at Tresco Abbey was created by Augustus Smith - Lord Proprietor of the Isles of Scilly who built the Abbey. The garden and plant collections have been added to ever since by successive members of the Dorrien-Smith family, who still own the property.
