Conserving Welsh Plants

This display of native Welsh plants is just five minutes walk from our Stable Block

The Welsh plants come from four Welsh National Nature Reserves

  • Cwm Idwal in Snowdonia
  • the Great Orme’s Maes y Facrell NNR on the Welsh north coast
  • Kenfig near Port Talbot on the Welsh south coast
  • the rhos pastures on Waun Las, the NNR here at the Garden in the heart of Carmarthenshire.

This fascinating display will show you how the National Botanic Garden of Wales, together with conservationists from across Wales, are actively helping to conserve rare and declining Welsh wild plants.

Together with the Garden’s horticulturalists, our scientists have also grown and studied many of these plants. Rather than have this work unseen and unappreciated, it was decided to display some of these beautiful, often delicate and subtle plants.

A pocket sized booklet about the display, called Conserving Welsh Plants, is available for 75p from our Gift Shop.

This display forms part of our Conserving Our Future Zone.
