BBC Wales X-Ray presenter Lucy Owen visited Treborth Botanic Garden in Bangor last week where she was given tips for revamping your back yard and looking after your garden.

Lucy, who visited Treborth on Wednesday 18th July, said: “I discovered Treborth Botanic Garden, a real hidden gem in Bangor. I loved filming there.”

“They’ll be plenty of garden advice coming up for you Monday 7.30pm, BBC X-Ray on BBC One Wales.”

Treborth Botanic Garden covers an area of 18 hectares on the shores of the Menai Strait and has been owned by Bangor University since 1960. The garden comprises 15ha of native woodland, 2ha of species rich unimproved grassland and 1ha managed orchard and many mature trees and shrubs.

There are also six glasshouses of varying temperatures, with special collections including orchids, cacti, succulents and carnivorous plants. The outside garden has free access to the public at all times and the glasshouses are open at selected times when staff or volunteers are present.

The Chinese Garden which is part of a collaboration between Treborth Botanic Garden and Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanic Garden in China, opened in 2016.
