EVERYTHING is coming up daffodils at the The National Botanic Garden of Wales. The venue has been given a £6m funding boost made up of £3.5 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and £2.7m from other partners.
The announcement was made on St David’s Day and the investment will help restore the Grade II listed Regency landscape in Llanarthney, Carmarthenshire back to its former glory.
Part of the work will be reinstating the interconnecting 18th century lakes, cascades, bridges and dams and will involve the recruitment of 300 new volunteers.
The investment will also create training opportunities and four new apprenticeships as volunteers join the garden’s existing team.
