Home to approximately half a million honeybees, the Botanic Garden is abuzz with activity throughout most of the year.
Research undertaken by the Garden’s Science Team has discovered that, although the Garden offers our honeybees a magnificent menu of more than 11,000 types of plants, they rely on the hedgerow, woodland and grassland species such as brambles, white clover, dandelion, willow, hawthorn and ivy for most of their diet.
The Garden’s Gift Shop takes orders over the phone, for more information or to buy our honey products, please call 01558 667168.
The Garden’s Gold range has been made possible through the Botanic Garden’s Growing the Future project, which is working to champion Welsh horticulture, plants for pollinators, the protection of wildlife and the virtues of growing plants for food, fun, health and well-being.
This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
