Glorious Gardens of Monmouthshire

We are lucky here in Monmouthshire. There are so many wonderful gardens to visit, excellent opportunities to indulge ourselves buying plants, and beautiful places to stay. Best of all, we have fellow gardeners who share our horticultural passions. People who love gardens, we’ve discovered, are generous with their time, enthusiasm and knowledge.
