With Georgian roots and solid Victorian foundations, Bodnant Garden (Gardd Bodnant) grew over the course of 20th century from dwelling by a stream in the Snowdonian foothills into a garden of world importance. Created by five generations of one family and cared for by the National Trust since 1949, it showcases historic global plant collections and influential design styles which make it, today, a jewel in the crown of the National Trust in Wales. In this new millennium conservation and renovation work is opening areas of the garden never before seen by the visiting public, revealing more of its rich past. With more acres yet to be unveiled, Bodnant Garden promises to delight and surprise for years to come. Featuring new photography and research, this book explores the fascinating story of this horticultural work of art, highlighting the amazing plant collections and creative people who have made it what it is today.
