Gardening with Jim Saul – Dyffryn Fernant revisited.

How the Garden has changed in three and a half months !

After our visit to the wonderful gardens of Dyffryn Fernant on a warm May day, owner Christina Shand kindly invited Jim Saul and I to return in August to see how things have grown during the summer. This time our visit coincided with a muggy misty day , when the very first hints of autumn can just be seen in the plants and scenery around the valley.

Jim pointed out some of his personal favorites to be found here and some of those are very unusual and distinctive – well worth a visit before autumn sets in. Of places to visit in Wales this far west Dyffryn Fernant is highly recommended.

“Go and see it” – Monty Don

There can be few more decisive reviews of a garden than this one from the star of BBC Gardeners’ World, so Pembrokeshire Life Online’s gardening correspondent, Jim Saul did just that.

On a glorious sunny May afternoon we were fortunate to be welcomed and shown around this enchanting place just below Waun Fach, east of Fishguard, by the creator, Christina Shand and her husband David. When she moved into Dyffryn Fernant in 1996, there was a run-down farmhouse and overgrown garden so Christina set about transforming it all, bit by bit.

The six acres of many different, natural, stylised and exotic gardens include a quarry area as you enter, then the front garden and kitchen garden – which were the first areas to be tackled -A plant nursery, rickyard, orchard, fernery, bog and woodland areas. From the gloriously pink house there are far-reaching views across the gardens to fields and the Preselis. Within the garden, a Cwm, a pond and the area referred to as ‘Beyond’ – where visitors are welcome to picnic. From the magic garden the views are wonderful.
