‘Treborth Botanic Garden – small garden, big plans’ by Natalie Chivers

Treborth Botanic Garden is the National Botanic Garden of Wales’ sister botanic garden, situated along the Menai Strait in North Wales.  Like many botanic gardens, Treborth has had an interesting journey up until now, and the Garden’s Curator, Natalie, will be sharing some of the history of the Garden, and exciting plans for the future.

As well as caring for more than 2,000 species of plants and planning the future of her Garden’s collections, Natalie has a keen interest in garden design and has worked for designers at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show since 2014.

Introductory talk by Abigail Lowe, a Garden PhD student, on her research to discover what plants pollinators are using within the Botanic Garden and Waun Las Nature Reserve, using pollen DNA metabarcoding.
