Welsh Historic Garden Trust Plant Fair
Saturday 05th May 2018

This is a date that should not be missed. In addition to all of the features of our open gardens during the National Garden Scheme, specialist nurseries and garden related crafts from all over the country are invited to participate. While the WHGT will be serving home-made country fare, throughout the day, with the added attraction of cream teas. On this event the gates open at 10am and we finish at 4pm.

There is a modest entry fee for adults and free parking.  The event is well advertised and has attracted visitors from far afield. It is rare for anyone to leave empty handed!


RHS Event - Where's best to place that plant? 
Saturday 16th June 2018

The day will be spent studying our collections. How and where best to grow them.  This is a unique opportunity to visit our trial beds and fields, where many of our woody collections, many of which have never been cultivated before, can be seen growing under challenging conditions. There will also be the opportunity to see and discuss many of the same plants, as well as others growing in our gardens in several different conditions, including the newly constructed autumn garden.

Rehderodendron indochinensis 

The informal event will begin at 2.00pm in the old granary (ysgubor in Welsh) a focal part of the nursery at Crûg, with registration and afternoon tea. Here the afternoon's itinerary will be discussed and adapted to that day’s weather and interests of the participants

Photinia villosa

The intention is to visit all three fields we have adapted for trial beds, including new under-plantings to the surrounding shelter belts of native trees. These areas cover most of the plants offered through the nursery, as in trees (Acer, Sorbus & Carpinus), shrubs (Deutzia, Philadelphus, Viburnum & Zanthoxylum) including some so called exotics (Schefflera, tree Dahlia, Lindera & Fatsia)

As well as our independent exploits there, searching for new species of Aspidistra.  

There will be an hour break for lunch (remember to bring your packed lunch), with hopefully an opportunity to admire the panoramic views of Snowdonia and discuss what we have seen so far.
