Ynglŷn â Llwyngarreg Garden
Since 2000 the owners have been developing a 2-acre field into a plantaholic’s haven with year-round impact, from spring bulbs through to glorious autumn colour.
Llwyngarreg continues to develop further, delighting plant lovers with its many rarities incl species Primulas, many bamboos with Roscoeas, Hedychiums and Salvias extending the season through to riotous autumn colour. Trees and rhododendrons have been underplanted with perennials. The sunken garden for tender/exotic gems and gravel terraces with formal pool continues to mature. Springs form a series of linked ponds across the main garden, providing colourful bog gardens.
A willow tunnel welcomes visitors into a maturing shelter belt, beside a woodland garden, beyond which lies the main garden with wide mixed borders and beds of, for example grasses, bamboos or Agapanthus. Additionally there are closely planted areas in front of the house and gravel gardens behind it.
Care has been taken to create tapestries of colour and leaf texture among the many trees, interspersed with unusual shrubs and perennial underplantings.
Plantsmen will linger to find many gems which reflect the owners’ particular favourites, carefully placed in conditions appropriate to the plant. Blue Himalayan poppies are spectacular in early summer and even seed themselves on the raised peat beds beside Dodecatheons and species Primulas of several kinds.
Children enjoy the swings and willow structures, some of which invite a scramble! Supervision of children is needed, as there are deep ponds.
