Discover Bodnant Gardens, Conwy, Wales There's something so beautifully peaceful about walking around the 80 acres of Bodnant Gardens in the truly beautiful Conwy Valley of Wales. Think of sweeping traditional lawns and walls, elegant Italianate terraces and a charming wild garden and pineto in what's called The Dell. There is blooming interest in the seasons here, with daffodils and bulbs coming to life in spring, rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias bursting out in April and May, and the popular Laburnum Arch and Azalea flowering in May and June. The gentle summer months are waiting for a splash of colour in the herbaceous borders, traditional roses blooming, hydrangeas, water lilies and water climbers. Autumn, however, is putting on a show of its own, with some stunning colours. Bodnant is also the happy home of the National Collections of Rhododendron forrestii, magnolia, eucryphia and embothrium.
