February half term for families at Bodnant Garden

We’re looking for willing hands and keen eyes to join us in the garden this February half term.

From Sunday to Sunday, February 19-26, we’ll be planting snowdrops in the Old Park meadow in the upper garden. We already have a fantastic display there and plan to keep growing it, planting another 20,000 each year. Join our gardeners and volunteers every day from 1-2pm – we’ll supply the plants and equipment, you drop by and add your snowdrop for posterity.

Delve into a little horticultural history on Ernest’s Tree Treasure Trail, from Monday to Friday, February 20-24. Follow in the footsteps of Victorian explorer Ernest Wilson who travelled to China finding new, exotic plants to bring back to Britain. Bodnant Garden still has many old trees and shrubs grown from seed collected by Wilson and you can track them around the garden with our special trail between 11am and 1pm – and discover a reward at the end.

Binoculars at the ready

Keep those eyes peeled and binoculars at hand to look for our feathered friends too. Join us on February 24 for a Birds of Bodnant guided walk, from 11am, and see what you can spot with the help of a local birdwatching expert.

If you’re bringing the family to Bodnant Garden this half term there’s no need to leave behind your four-legged companions. The garden welcomes dogs all day every day during February – the season then closes at the end of the month for a short while until we open the gates to pooches once more in May.

When you need to refuel (and relax) there’s hearty refreshment available at our two tearooms, al fresco dining at our Dell kiosk, and plenty of picnic areas around the garden. All these family events are free of charge (normal garden admission applies) but call 01492 650460 to book a place for the guided walk.

We hope you'll join us at Bodnant Garden this February half term. Your support helps us look after the garden and all our special places, For Ever For Everyone.
