Bodnant is a garden for all seasons, with a mass of spring bulbs and camellias starting off the year, followed by a vivid display of blooms from the rhododendrons and azaleas that thrive in the mild and humid climate of west Wales. Summer brings the herbaceous plants and roses, while autumn is the season of golden chrysanthemums.
