A Welsh Garden Visit


By neellan


My local Garden Club arranged a visit this week to a NGS listed garden in Denbighshire – Wylan Llangynhafal.
It was a bright but breezy evening on Monday when 20 keen gardeners arrived at our beautiful destination, we were greeted with the invitation to wander at will around the garden then refreshments would be served in the house we eagerly set out to investigate the garden…….

A magnificent Monkey Puzzle tree at the entrance

The rear garden with mountain view providing a backdrop for the Pergola covered in Clematis Montana and Wisteria about to burst into blossom.

Clematis Montana clad Pergola

Alpines flanking either side of the steps leading to the upper garden from……..

the charming seating area

Berberis and shrubs in the raised bed

Pink Rhododendron buds

Pulsatilla Vulgaris – the Pasque flower in all it’s glory.

After our breezy wanderings we were welcomed indoors for scrumptious refreshments and lots of gardening chat in the comfort of Mr and Mrs Perkins’ home.
Over the years they have transformed a field into this lovely garden with it’s stunning views to the mountains on all sides.

Wylan is open by arrangement only.

Lovely plants - I especially like that pulsatilla vulgaris - I have a little one in a pot but it is not in flower yet - and the Montana is really colourful - thanks for sharing - Jane
