2014 Stage display at Llandysul Gardening Weekend.

We’ve had some snow and frost and it’s now cold and damp but things are about to change and spring is around the corner especially in the Teifi Valley town of Llandysul, where the annual Gardening Weekend will be held from the 20th to the 22nd of February.  The Gardening Weekend is in its 15th years and is again hosted by Chelsea Gold Medal winning Farmyard Nurseries who will also have a stall selling all sorts of plants from their nursery, including their famous hellebores.

The Llandysul Gardening Weekend is on for three days, from Friday 20th February to Sunday 22nd February, 10am-5pm.

Tysul Hall will be filled with garden related stalls, the stage will be transformed by  Richard Bramley of Farmyard Nurseries into a garden fantasy and every day there will be talks by expert gardening speakers.
