Botanic bargains on sale

Botanic bargains on sale

Make a date for some blooming bargains at the National Botanic Garden annual plant sale.

Hundreds of plants, donated by Garden staff, volunteers, members and the public will be on offer over the two-day fundraising effort on Friday and Saturday, May 16 and 17.

There’s still time to donate plants – for details of how to do so, call Jane Down on 01558 667118 – but, mostly, you should be thinking about clearing a space in your backyard for the upcoming deluge of botanical bargains.

Last year’s volunteer-run sale raised more than £2,000  for Garden coffers and this year’s fair is again promising an interesting mix of stalls offering vegetables, bedding plants, perennials and plants for wildlife.

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is open from 10am to 6pm and the Annual Plant Sale will run on both days. Admission to the Garden is £8.50 (concessions £7) for adults and £4.50 for children.

For more information about this or other events, call 01558 667149 or email

• Day One of the plant sale (Friday May 16) coincides with the Botanic Garden’s annual Members’ Day, when the attraction’s signed-up, card-holding supporters are treated to their very own ‘garden party’. As well as walks, talks and tours, there will be members-only events such as ‘Beneath The Great Glasshouse’ tours and a ‘Meet the Director’ session. Activities are from 10am.
