Over the last eighteen months under the enthusiastic leadership of Ray
Butt, one of our Trustees, we have been researching the rhododendron
collection at Penllergare, and have managed to identify and source the
origins of many of the original species and hybrids grown by John
Dillwyn Llewelyn and his father before him. With the assistance and
advice of the Head Gardener of Clyne Gardens and our own wonderful
woodland volunteers, we are now proposing to reintroduce many of these
rhododendrons, along with azaleas, hellebores, ferns, wild daffodils,
snowdrops and other woodland plants to recreate the character of the
gardens as they appear in JDL's photographs and watercolours.Your £25 donation will allow us to buy and plant an azalea at Penllergare Valley Woods.
If you’re a tax-payer your donation can be increased by 25% at no
cost to yourself because the Penllergare Trust is a registered charity
1082128). Write "Gift Aid" in the message space at checkout and we'll
make sure we get a Gift Aid Declaration form sent to you for completion.
