National Garden of Wales Receives Money To Clear Debt
It`s a one-off grant to put the £43m garden on a sound financial footing to attract private investment.
The money it receives each year from the assembly government will rise from £150,000 to up to £550,000.
Managers of the garden at Llanarthne in Carmarthenshire welcomed it as a "monumental milestone".
Two months ago, it emerged that garden managers were in talks with the assembly government to remove the debt and increase its annual grant.
