If you like Japan Garden, the place is for you. The garden has japan style, lots of bonsai. Lots of people do not know how the japan garden looks like, so this is the place you should go.

I am nine years old and I have owned 2 bonsai trees but they had a very short life. But the tree I have just bought is a very healthy looking one which was £65 but it was half price . The people were very helpful.

Enjoyed a morning at Japanese Garden, quite small shop but plenty of plants to view and Buy also Japanese artefacts on Sale you can visit the Gardens for which there is a charge we spent a lot of time reviewing the plants so many to see and reasonable prices if you like Gardens you must visit

A tranquil escape from the hustle bustle, you can stroll through these beautiful gardens or sit and meditate. Lovely garden centre and gift shop in the gardens and also lovely tea rooms and Aladdin's cave style gift shop nearby.

This garden is more extensive than you would expect to find at a bonsai nursery and is a wonderful antidote to the hustle and bustle of Newquay. Well worth the visit. But go by car! We went on the bus from Newquay but I do not recommend this because on return we found they are unreliable and do not usually... More
