Welcome to the National Botanic Garden of Wales

Even though our Garden is closed and no one can visit, there are still plenty of ways to keep in touch and a whole host of activities for people of all ages to get involved with.


Why not try keeping a record of the wildlife in your garden? You’ll be amazed at the variety of species you will discover in your own backyard – and we have an easy step-by-step guide to help you.  Perfect for children from early years to Key Stage 2 is our Veg Box activity, which encourages children to use horticultural skills to grow plants using a variety of recycled containers.  And why not make your own bee hotel? A great activity for all the family.

There are great tips for gardeners, too.  Planting for Pollinators will introduce you to the plant families that pollinating insects love, there’s a series of fab online course videos which will help you get growing at your very best, and you can find out why it’s so important to be peat free 

There are lots more ideas on our Growing the Future resources pages.
