Visit CAT’s Gardens during the Festival of Gardens North Wales

We are fortunate enough to live in a most spectacularly beautiful part of Wales – mountains, hills, lakes, waterfalls, the estuary and the coast. Every day looks different, and even the rain brings out a moody beauty.

Less than four hours on the train from London, why not see for yourself? The seven acres of CATs sustainable and organic gardens are looking gorgeous right now.

On Thursday 2nd June, we will be hosting two special events.

At 12 noon, there will be a comprehensive gardens tour; followed at 2pm by a Meet the Head Gardener event. Roger McLennan has been gardening at CAT for over 30 years, and appeared on numerous gardening programmes, and has a wealth of knowledge under his belt. This event is held in conjunction with The Festival of Gardens – the brainchild of broadcaster and gardener Tony Russell; and celebrates the scenery of Snowdonia and North Wales.

Running over half term, from Saturday May 28th until Sunday June 5th, the Festival follows the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and covers the Spring Bank Holiday.

Plantsman, gardener, author and broadcaster Roy Lancaster CBE, will officially open the 2016 Festival at the beautifully-restored gardens of Plas Cadnant on Saturday May 28th. (Entry by pre-booked ticket: 01248 717174).
