The lower area, known as The Dell is formed by the valley of the River Hiraethlyn and contains the Pinetum and Wild Garden, where 200-year old trees tower above azaleas, hydrangeas and hosters.
The season commences in March with wonderful displays of Magnolias and Camellias, and carpets with carpets of golden Daffodils. Gorgeous Rhododendrons and Azaleas flower profusely from mid April to late May, whilst the stunning 55 metre Laburnum Arch is a spectacular sight from around the third week of May until early June.
