Gardens of North Wales

North Wales a garden of Eden?

North Wales is full of gardens. So many, in fact, you’d be forgiven for wondering where one ends and the next one starts. Things grow bigger and better in our great outdoors, too. It’s our climate that does it. Being so close to the sea, and all that rain. Which could explain why there are 18 record-breaking trees at Bodnant Garden. And why Dibleys nursery has picked up 18 gold awards at the Chelsea Flower Show. And you won’t be surprised that Portmeirion has plants usually found in the Brazilian rainforest growing happily outdoors. And that Medwyn Williams’ vegetables have won him ten gold medals at Chelsea. Or that Erddig’s crop of apples is so big they have to throw a festival in its honour..


And if horticulture and holidays are a few of your favourite things, you’ll be pleased to hear we’ve come up with a unique collection of garden breaks. Which include visits to all our best bits. Well, you wouldn’t want to miss anything, would you?


famous gardens of North Wales

We like to think our back yard is a bit special. Just look what’s in it. Walled gardens at Erddig. Organic gardens at Plas Brondanw. Some of them have picked up an award or two, like Bodnant. And all of them are interesting, whether or not you know your laburnum from your busy lizzy. And if you don’t, you never know, one visit could be all the inspiration you need to make a beeline for your nearest garden centre.

National Trust Gardens of North Wales

The National Trust gardens of North Wales are in good company. They’re just a few of the UK’s historic parks and gardens cared for by the National Trust. The Trust is responsible for some of the most important collections of cultivated plants in the world, too. A total of 450 skilled gardeners and more than 1,500 garden volunteers use traditional methods and some innovative new ones. So these national treasures can be enjoyed by everyone.
