More info on the rare plants and the farming methods can also be found here on the Plantlife site

The Great Orme is a vast limestone headland on the north Wales coast. Surrounded on three sides by sea and bathed in sunshine, the Great Orme has an exceptionally mild climate which, combined with the lime-rich rock, make it one of the top five sites for rare plants in Britain.
