Conserving Welsh Plants

This display of native Welsh plants is just a five-minute walk from the Stable Block and Caffi Botanica

The plants come from three Welsh national nature reserves and one Site of Special Scientific Interest:

  • Cwm Idwal in Snowdonia
  • the Great Orme’s Maes y Facrell National Nature Reserve on the Welsh north coast
  • Kenfig near Port Talbot on the Welsh south coast
  • Breidden Hill Site of Special Scientific Interest, Welshpool – home to some of the rarest species in Wales
Breidden Display Bed, Conserving Welsh Plants

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 horticulturists, 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 from the information point in the Great Glasshouse.
