An exciting new development in Fuchsia culture is the formation of Fuchsia Research International based at historic Margam Park, near Port Talbot in South Wales, where Neath Port Talbot Borough Council, owners of the estate, have invested substantial funds in refurbishing a large Victorian greenhouse that is the “home” to probably the largest and most comprehensive collection of Fuchsia species in the world.
Margam Country Park consists of almost 900 acres of heavily habited woodland where herds of deer graze freely around the lakes and wildlife sanctuaries. Dominating the scene is the Castle and within its grounds and gardens is enough to delight any eco enthusiast with its diverse collection of splendid trees and plants from across the world. Perfect with friends and family, this location has to be up there with the best places you could ever go to appreciate the surrounding wildlife and to spend time with your loved ones which makes it the perfect location for the ‘greenhouse’ where the most treasured Fuchsia species can be kept.
Landscaped to provide a native, like by like habitat for both Andean and New Zealand Fuchsia species. By reusing any rainwater it can with an organic regime, this self-sufficient greenhouse is perfect for many beautiful species of Fuchsia.
