A place of tranquility and reflection

About Us

Established in the heart of St Austell more than 40 years ago, Pinetum Gardens is a place of tranquillity and garden beauty, largely created by Ray and Shirley Clemo; Shirley is an expert on plants and was awarded an MBE in 2011 for her work at Pinetum.

A garden for all seasons, the 30-acre site is home to one of the largest plant collections in the county, set within stunning parkland and some of Cornwall’s most spectacular champion trees.
