Gardening Weekend

Friday 14 Feb 2020 - Sunday 16 Feb 2020 - 10:00 AM
hellebores and snowdrops

The three-day event is the perfect start to your gardening year with expert talks on everything from growing fruit and vegetables to keeping your garden colourful at any time of year.

This year will be our 23rd! And we have a fantastic line up of speakers for you. Malcolm will be back as well as talks from Joe from Aberglasney Gardens, Julian and Matt . With subjects ranging from Hellebores to Vegetables, Meadow planting and Wildflowers, Snowdrops and Woodland gardens to shade loving plants. The local Hall will be filled, as usual, with masses of interesting plants grown at the nursery. To whet your appetite this year, as well as a huge selection of our world renowned Hellebores, there will be a good range of young perennial plants in 9 cm. pots at bargain prices, cottage garden plants, shrubs, riots of colourful Primulas, Daffodils and Snowdrops to mention but a few. We also have a good selection of rare and unusual perennials.

The main display this years Llandysul Gardening Weekend, as always, is a closely guarded secret. The theme is taking shape but no one (including Richard who designs it) really knows until the day. Come and give us your opinions! One thing is certain there will be Hellebores there somewhere, this year we have several stunning new varieties that are to be incorporated into the display, most of which will be available as seed or young plants on the day.

The whole event is free and if gardening is not quite your forte there will be other stalls there to tempt you. Tea, coffee and cakes are in abundance.
