Welcome to our Gardening Club Rhydlewis and District Gardening Club has been around since the time of Adam and Eve. In fact, it is believed that one of our members planted and tended the very apple tree that gave rise to the pair being expelled from the garden!!

Whether this urban myth is true or not, the club is here to encourage, improve and extend the members' knowledge of all branches of horticulture. It is open to everyone and new members are all always welcome to come along.

Our activities during the year include a varied programme of talks and social events, summer garden visits, a plant sale, social gatherings/bbq and an annual open show in August.

On Tuesday 31st July, we held our annual summer party. This year it was at Bryn Collen, Jenny’s house. Jenny and her late husband Jim has maintained this extraordinary garden, with plants from all over the globe, for many years, and we were all praying for a sunny evening so that we could enjoy strolling around. The rain held off for an hour or two and, apart from a couple of muddy areas at the bottom of the valley, everyone managed to stroll most of the garden and enjoy the displays, which, despite the bad weather this year looked good.  

Bryn Collen is a great house for a party, plenty of room and lots of things to start a conversation. There was an excellent turnout for the party, with three new members arriving that evening; Vicky from Brongest, and Liz and Gary, who are newcomers into Rhydlewis.
Everyone had helped supplied the potluck supper and supplement the joint of cold beef and side of cold ham that club funds had contributed. The puddings were particularly exquisite, with bannofi pies, pavlova and trifle to tempt.  

 So a hearty thanks to Jenny, who organised the event. The next club event is the autumn show. The schedule for entries is now up on this site on its own page; please do enter whatever you can and please do encourage your children and nieghbours to do the same.
