Picton Castle and Gardens, Haverford West
Picton Castle was built in the 13th century and is surrounded by extensive woodland gardens.
The Gardens at Picton Castle in Pembrokeshire are home to a feast of wild flowers, beeches and many other mature trees intermingled with a fine well labelled collection of beautiful woodland shrubs and unusual conifers.
These include magnolias, camelia, myrtle and a unique collection of rhododendrons and azaleas.
There is walled garden with pond and formal borders including tropical plants, a large collection of culinary and medicinal herbs. On one side of the walled garden is a door leading to a small fernery.
There is a new late summer garden in the 'Prairie Style' with lots of colour - see image.
Do not miss the woodland garden which is of interest all year round and includes hydrangeas.
One of our Head Gardener’s favourite areas of the Gardens in 2016 has been the meadow which covers about an acre and lies to the south of the Castle. “With every tour of the gardens with a group I find myself waxing lyrical about the gentle movement of grasses in the wind, the finches and swallows flying above and the masses of wild flowers that form a gentle kaleidoscope of colour.” says Roddy.
The castle itself is worth seeing and is half fortified manor house and half fully developed medieval castle. There are tours of the castle.
