BODNANT GARDEN

BODNANT GARDEN by Iona McLaren (Pitkin £16.99)

Prince Charles says it is ‘one of Wales’ greatest treasures’; Harold Nicolson called it ‘one of the wonders of the world’. 

This special place is Bodnant Garden, located in the Snowdonian foothills and renowned for its year-round rhododendrons — brought back from far-flung places by 20th-century plant hunters. 

Written by Iona McLaren, whose great-great-great grandfather bought the land in 1874, this book gives an insider’s tour of the 80-acre estate, handed to the National Trust in 1949. It is a beautiful portrait of an exceptional garden passed down the generations.
