Synopsis
Passionate about the dramatic and sculptural shapes and colours of succulents from a young age, Daniel Michael’s dream came true when he was invited to open a nursery in the grounds of the renowned Tremenheere sculpture garden in Cornwall. Having gained invaluable experience working in the garden at St Michael’s Mount, Daniel was able to draw upon this to start up the new venture at the Tremenheere. The Nursery opened in 2014 and Daniel has since built up an impressive reputation for growing and stocking a wonderful collection of quality, rare and unusual succulents. In recent years Daniel has begun to grow his own hybrids, Aeonium ’Phoenix Flame’ is an introduction he is particularly proud of, it’s ‘absolutely stunning” he says. They grow over 50 varieties of echeveria at the nursery, his ambition however is to produce succulents that can withstand our winters. Aware that the climate in Cornwall is ideal for succulents he is wishes to encourage succulent enthusiasts elsewhere in the country not to be put off Succulents as they don’t over winter well. He plans to give several talks at the nursery on how to care for succulents over the winter and how to propagate them. Since starting their website https://surrealsucculents.co.uk orders pour in from all over the country. Packed with advice and tips on how to care for succulents, as well as beautiful imagery of their collection. The Website is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in succulents. As well as their extensive collection of succulents which are available to buy, local designer Mark Lea has designed and created a range of decorative containers and hanging baskets as well as glass terrariums which are also all available on the website. This feature shows Daniel and Mark at work on the Surreal Succulents nursery and at the Tremenheere plant centre standing outside their rustic hand built wooden cabin along with their extensive Succulent collection, an endless array of colours, shapes and sizes.
