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.

Garden Visit June 2013

 A fine day for our garden visit to Sychpant  near Newcastle Emlyn, where Doreen and Billy Driscoll garden with skill and humour combined. Over twenty of the gardening club came to wander through the sunny garden, chuckling at the horticultural jokes and admiring the skill and determination of the gardeners. Doreen is always working on her garden; the Japanese garden is the latest addition.  The various themes were entertaining and imaginative, and I also loved the vegetable plot, which was the only conventional part of the garden, I think! The pictures will give you some idea of how original and successful her planting and landscaping is.
Afterwards we all went to the Riverside Cafe for stupendous veggie buffet meal. 
Still bathed in sunshine, some of us ate and chatted by the Teify in the Riverside garden. 
Everyone seemed to have a good time.

So now we turn our attention to the Summer Party; it's just all fun, fun, fun this time of year for Gardening Club Members.
