Daffodil Day at The National Botanic Gardens of Wales

Daffodils will be the centre of attention for a special day devoted to Wales’ national flower – taking place at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on Sunday, March 25th.

 With more than 50 varieties of daffodils on display, the Garden is a natural place to explore the difference between trumpets, tazettas and tête-a-têtes.

 Come and discover how Welsh varieties have been pushed close to extinction and why daffodils are associated with our patron saint, St. David.

Renowned naturalist, Ray Woods, will be our special guide as he gives a free talk and guided walk about the history of daffodils and their Welsh connections.  The talk will take place in Theatr Botanica at 1pm and will be followed by a guided walk of the Garden’s daffodil collections

There’ll be a fab daffodil competition on the day too, where little ones and grown-ups can take a photo with our ‘Daffodil Selfie-Frame’ among the Garden’s daffodils, with a children’s garden tools set as a prize for the children, and potted daffodils and a Growing the Future book for adults for our favourite entries!  Simply post your photos to the Garden’s or Growing the Future’s Facebook page to enter.

 A self-led trail around the Garden’s various daffodil highlights will be available to visitors in the run-up to the day, as well as on Sunday, March 25th.

Daffodil Day is on from 10am until 4.30pm, with all daffodil-related activities included in the Garden admission price.

Admission to the Garden is £10.50 (including Gift Aid) for adults and £4.95 for children five to 16 years of age. Entry is free for Garden members and parking is free for all.
