Garden view
The National Botanic Garden of Wales was opened as a Millennium Project on the site of a former Regency Parkland. It covers an area of 560 acres and includes a National Nature Reserve which is also farmed organically; there is a core botanic garden of some 120 acres containing approximately 9,000 different plants. These plants are grown for the purposes of scientific research, display, education and conservation.
