The National Botanic Garden of Wales

During August, I was camping in South Wales and found the opportunity to finally visit The National Botanic Garden of Wales.

I remember several years ago watching a television program all about the gardens’ construction, the planting and its first year of opening, highlighting the trials and tribulations.

I was fascinated - seeing both the historical aspects of the original Middleton estate as well as the modern large span glasshouse. The entire visitor experience was excellent.

It was wonderful to see how much has happened in a relatively short period of time since it first opened. The gardens is still developing proving that this garden is a garden to watch for the future.

The pictures below speak for themselves. I would encourage everyone to visit when in Carmarthenshire.
