A group of gardens in West Wales is celebrating five years of working together with the launch of a new passport-style leaflet.


The Great Gardens of West Wales first forged their seven-strong partnership in 2012 and have been working together, trying to raise the profile of the region’s garden and to increase visitor numbers.


The passport can be collected at any one of the Great Gardens of West Wales. Full price will be paid at the first garden then visitors will receive a stamp in the leaflet which entitles them to discounts on admission at the next participating gardens. The passport expires at the end of each year.


Ellen Llewellyn, from Aberglasney Gardens, said: “All seven gardens are among the treasures of West Wales. The temperate climate of the area encourages the development of many rare and exotic trees and plants from around the globe providing a show of vibrant colours, enchanting perfumes, and stunning vistas.


“All seven are situated in spectacular locations with wonderful collections of plants and trees. They represent a range of styles ranging from modern to historic, woodland to coastal. They complement each other perfectly in type of garden as well as the ways they change with the seasons.”


Participating gardens are the National Botanic Garden of Wales, Upton Castle Gardens, Cae Hir Gardens, Dyffryn Fernant Garden, Colby Woodland Garden, Aberglasney Gardens and Picton Castle and Gardens.
