Image of RhododendronsCaptain Talbot Fletcher, who inherited the Margam Estate in 1918, was a keen botanist. He helped finance the plant hunter Frank Kingdon-Ward. On one of his expedition to the Himalayas, Kingdon-Ward brought back plants and seed for the gardens here at Margam, he included many newly discovered types of rhododendrons and azaleas.  In spring the many rhododendron bushes in the park burst into flower.
