“Visitors be surprised – a hidden gem of a garden, in the shadow of Castell Coch, fed by a stoned mountain stream. Footbridge invites you to naturalised areas, set against a woodland backdrop. Developed over 10 yrs with a good variety of plants, filling two main borders of herbaceous plants for spring and summer. Garden structures, summer house, patios, greenhouse and small veg area.”
The National Garden Scheme are also running a competition to win WOLF-Garten tools. There are six categories to get creative with and the winning image of the BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine: Fantastic Flowers category will appear in the magazine’s 2019 calendar. The judging panel will be George Plumptre, CEO of National Garden Scheme, a professional photographer and Lucy Hall, editor of BBC Gardeners’ World magazine.
