About the garden
Dyffryn Fernant Garden is a six acre garden tucked into a valley in the Preseli uplands just before they plunge into the sea at Dinas Island in North Pembrokeshire.
A modern garden, made since 1996, it includes richly planted high colour and exotic planting in formal areas; journeys through a bog garden to a wild marsh, pond and stream; then meanders through large blocks of ornamental grasses.
A spring display of tulips is followed by a succession of summer growth, starting with Clematis montana and building up to a crescendo of dahlias, salvias and autumn colour. The garden works as a whole yet has many distinct areas including the Front Garden, Rickyard, Orchard and Courtyard, many with seating to give visitors a chance to enjoy the views.
The Front Garden is awash with colour in summer, the Rickyard has swathes of planting contrasting with ordered topiary, the Courtyard a mix of exotic architectural leaf forms and succulents, and the Orchard an ever-changing herbaceous border leading out to the species-rich marsh on the valley floor and the Pembrokeshire landscape beyond. The Bog Garden, centred by a shining obelisk, is particularly impressive. Nicky's Field, a geometric display of ornamental grasses, leads on to the pond, while the Magic Garden above the house affords a full view of Mynydd Dinas (Dinas Mountain).
