Long Description:
The Tropical Greenhouse, was deigned by world-renowned Welsh architect John Belle, celebrated for his restoration of some of the most famous landmarks in the USA including New York’s Grand Central Station Terminal & the National Museum of Immigration on Ellis Island.

"The Orchid Festival Weekend. This event usually takes place around the middle of September every year and offers orchid fans a rare chance to see – and buy! – the best of blooms from Europe’s top nurseries. It also features a series of demonstrations and talks – for beginners and experts alike – including ‘Basic Care of Orchids as Houseplants’, ‘Cultivating Unusual Species’ and ‘Orchids in Wales’.

Autumn Colour with a Difference
In autumn, the Tropical House is a great time to come and see our red flowered bromeliads in bloom.
Carmarthenshire, Wales."
