The Austell Project took inspiration from, collaborating with and celebrating Cornwall’s horticultural roots to create a variety of greening initiatives.

Three of St Austell’s garden attractions, Hidden Valley Gardens, St Blazey’s Gardens Cottage and The Lost Gardens of Heligan agreed to give Digital Digging a virtual tour of their garden’s special places, secret spots and their gardeners’ favourite plants. Green fingers crossed we had an exclusive look into parts of the garden usually out of bounds to members of the public.
