Many of the gardens thrive because of their location, benefitting from the warmth and moisture of the Gulf Stream. Frosts are uncommon and drought rare which makes it a great area to grow plants collected from all over the world.

There will be events and activities throughout the sixteen day period and a 'Friends of the Festival' card gives you discounts at many of the gardens. For information on the festival and how you can become a Festival Friend, visit this website.

We are delighted to be a part of this festival as we are very proud of our floral displays and gardens that bring so much pleasure to our passengers and the volunteers who tend them. We will be working with local country house and garden at Plas Tan y Bwlch throughout the event, including the festival launch.
