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.



The home and pretty garden of Pat O'Reilly and Sue Parker, who do so much for nature in the area. Go to their website, http://www.first-nature.com/about.php to learn more about their work and find out about the books they've written.


A massive thank you to Carrie and Trefor Davies, who allowed us to invade their lovely garden and home.  

Hillcrest has wonderful views as well as an already mature aspect, but there are new projects afoot, which Tefor and Carrie explained as they  showed us round.


Our Chair, Jenny Archibald, with her late husband Jim maintained an extraordinary garden for many years, with plants from all over the globe, for many years. Several acres of mature plants stretch from the house to the bottom of the valley where a stream runs. These photos, taken in 2012, were during the bad summer of rain, rain, rain, but the garden still looks beautiful.
