GARDENS in Gwynedd and Anglesey will take centre stage in a festival that is expected to plough £2 million into the North Wales economy.

Thousands of green-fingered visitors from across Britain are expected at the region’s third annual Festival of Gardens.

The event has quickly blossomed into a ‘must-see’ on the nation’s horticultural calendar.

Among the popular destinations on the itinerary will be Crug Farm Plants, Caernarfon, Penrhyn Castle, near Bangor, and Plas Newydd, Llanfairpwll and Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens in Menai Bridge, Anglesey.

Bodrhyddan Hall, Rhuddlan, home of Lord Owain Langford, will host the launch of the 16-day spectacle on June 2.
