Well it doesn’t seem like two minutes since the last time we were doing this, but it has come round again!

This year we have an action packed event with one of the best array of speakers that we have had for a long time.

We are pleased to welcome:

Keith Brown (Cilgwyn Lodge – Vegetables,  Hellebores)

Tim Newby (Llanerchaeron gardens)

Richard Bramley (Farmyard Nurseries – Hellebores, Winter Shrubs)

Derry Watkins (Special Plants – bold late colour in the garden)

Joe Atkins (Aberglasney – plant associations)

National Botanic Garden of Wales (The new lake restoration project)

Ivor mace (RHS lectures – Vegetables)

For more details of our speakers this year please look at ‘our calendar’(top row of our main page).

For those of you that are new to this annual event this is a FREE show that we hold,  with help from the local community council, to ‘kick start’ the gardening year.

Held over three days we transform the local hall into a winter wonderland. It is always a challenge to create a new centre stage display, one that will rival the many we have done in previous years.

Our world renowned hellebores.

The hall will be filled with vibrant dogwoods and willows – fragrant Viburnum, Lonicera, Sarcococca and Daphnes to mention but a few. Other early birds that will be making an appearance include snowdrops, narcissi and our fabulous hellebores.

As well as all the plants there will be a range of gardening related stalls to tempt you. Cakes, sandwiches and a cuppa are also available so you can relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Just up the road at our nursery we will be running guided tours of the Hellebore growing area (where our 20,000 hellebores are produced) and the general nursery. This will include a look at the parent plants and the plantings in our open garden. The nursery itself covers over 3 acres and specialises in herbaceous perennials, shrubs and alpines. We also have a large selection of trees, conifers, seasonal plants and a range of ornamental pots and stoneware. If you would like to just browse at the nursery our staff will be more than happy to help. The coffee shop will be open for tea, coffee and cakes if you feel the need for refueling and a break.
