Beautiful National Trust Garden in North Wales
Bodnant Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens in the UK, covering some 80 acres and situated above the River Conwy on ground sloping towards the west and looking across the valley towards the Snowdonia range.
The Garden has two parts. The upper area, around the Hall, consists of formal lawns and herbaceous borders, magnificent Italiante Terraces featuring buttressed walls and brick paths, curved steps and pergolas, the Pin Mill and Lily Ponds.
The lower area, known as The Dell is formed by the valley of the River Hiraethlyn and contains the Pinetum and Wild Garden, where 200-year old trees tower above azaleas, hydrangeas and hosters.
The season commences in March with wonderful displays of Magnolias and Camellias, and carpets with carpets of golden Daffodils. Gorgeous Rhododendrons and Azaleas flower profusely from mid April to late May, whilst the stunning 55 metre Laburnum Arch is a spectacular sight from around the third week of May until early June. Throughout the summer months the Garden looks delightful with colourful displays of roses, water lilies, clematis, eucryphia, hydrangeas and glorious herbaceous borders. This is followed by amazing autumn colours and berries in October.
At Bodnant Garden we grow a wide range of interesting and beautiful plants from all over the world, particularly China, North America, Europe and Japan that are suited to the Welsh climate and soil. As well as this, great care has been taken to place the plants in such a way that they enhance each other and contribute to the general beauty of the Garden throughout the seasons.
The Garden will interest amateur and professional gardeners, artists, photographers and families alike.
