About Pwyllygarth Farm

Pwllygarth Farm was built by Welsh heiress Emily Charlotte Talbot in 1904 as a working farm. Historical documentation relating to the history of the farm is available to visitors.

Miss Talbot’s uncle was Henry Fox Talbot, who invented photography. In his memory the garden also has within it an antique camera collection.

The property was purchased four years ago by Cheryl Bass who spent the first year clearing rubbish, bramble and everything else in between.

Part of the front garden has been turned into a sedum planted woodland rockery feature.

The front garden been creatively planted between paving, whilst the side garden features raised rockery beds, sedum planted walls and a rose garden.

The garden at the rear of the property is a creative mix of planting and features including:

– A reading corner flooded with flower and herb pots
– A Japanese garden
– A butterfly rockery garden planted with a galaxy of sedums and rockery flowers and shrubs.
– A cosy summer house embedded in colour
– A jacuzzi spa and bar area, laced with vines and scented shrubs.
– A wildlife pond, showcasing an upcycled planted tree trunk, grasses, sedum and upcycles shells.

Although the garden is a young garden it offers visitors so many ideas they can use in their gardens that includes hard landscaping, the creation of rooms within rooms within the garden, the recycling of trees, shells, walls and stones, imaginative pot planting, raised vegetable gardening, a Japanese garden feature, rockeries, rose gardens and the redesigning of wallspace.

Outside the property is a wasteland that I am in the process of applying for funding to transform it into a wildflower garden.
