June bloom at Anglesey Abbey
Enjoy the amazing colour of the Herbaceous Border, the heady scent of the Rose Garden and the buzz of insects in the wildflower meadows as the gardens put on a dazzling display of colour in June. Surprisingly June is one of our quieter months for visitors despite the gardens being at their absolute peak. If you want to enjoy the gardens without the summer crowds we strongly recommend a visit during June.
The Herbaceous Border
Created by Lord Fairhaven in the early 1950s, the sweeping Herbaceous Border puts on an amazing display of irises, lupins and pyrethrums during June. It's the perfect place to sit, relax, enjoy the flowers and listen to the birds.
The Rose Garden
Let the kaleidoscope of colour and heady scent overpower your senses in the quintessential English Rose Garden. There's over forty borders and thousands of roses - all you need to do is try and pick your favourite!
Large areas of the gardens are left un-mown until late summer. This allows wildflowers to flourish and make it a good place to see butterflies, hoverflies and bees.
In June lookout for Pyramidal, Bee and Spotted orchids.
