Hafod, Mrs Johnes' Flower Garden (also known as American Garden, Adam and Eve Garden)

Introduction

The flower garden was overgrown by the 1930s and severely damaged by forestry activity in the 1950s. Some restoration of the perimeter wall and gates was done in 1988-9. After clearance of a mature sitka spruce plantation in 2009 the stumps were extracted, the former forest road re-routed outside the garden, and the soil surface graded. Further restoration will be required.
