The first region we covered was Cornwall and by the time 12 months elapsed more than 200 gardens had applied to join ... With over 500 properties on our guide and more applying to join we should maintain our place as a leading resource for garden lovers.'

The majority of sites registered are, or started life as, the grounds of private houses, but public parks and cemeteries form important categories too ... The emphasis of the Register is on "designed" landscapes, rather than on planting or botanical importance ... Registered sites are not open to the public unless advertised elsewhere as being so.'
