We are pleased to welcome:

Keith Brown (Cilgwyn Lodge – Vegetables,  Hellebores)

Tim Newby (Llanerchaeron gardens)

Richard Bramley (Farmyard Nurseries – Hellebores, Winter Shrubs)

National Botanic Garden of Wales (The new lake restoration project)

Ivor mace (RHS lectures – Vegetables)

For more details of our speakers this year please look at our calender.

For those of you that are new to this annual event this is a FREE show that we hold,  with help from the local community council, to ‘kick start’ the gardening year.

Held over three days we transform the local hall into a winter wonderland. It is always a challenge to create a new centre stage display, one that will rival the many we have done in previous years.

Our world renowned hellebores.

The hall will be filled with vibrant dogwoods and willows – fragrant Viburnum, Lonicera, Sarcococca and Daphnes to mention but a few. Other early birds that will be making an appearance include snowdrops, narcissi and our fabulous hellebores.

As well as all the plants there will be a range of gardening related stalls to tempt you. Cakes, sandwiches and a cuppa are also available so you can relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Just up the road at our nursery we will be running guided tours of the Hellebore growing area (where our 20,000 hellebores are produced) and the general nursery. This will include a look at the parent plants and the plantings in our open garden. The nursery itself covers over 3 acres and specialises in herbaceous perennials, shrubs and alpines. We also have a large selection of trees, conifers, seasonal plants and a range of ornamental pots and stoneware. If you would like to just browse at the nursery our staff will be more than happy to help. The coffee shop will be open for tea, coffee and cakes if you feel the need for refueling and a break.

The nursery covers an area of approximately 3 acres, stocking upwards of 2000 varieties of plants and is based just outside Llandysul. 


The outdoor growing area.

As many plants as possible are grown outside in open beds to promote hardy garden worthy plants that will survive the rigours of our Welsh climate, however  a large area is covered with polythene tunnels to protect young plants, add shade or generally coddle the more unusual bits and pieces..



One of the many herbaceous plant stock areas in full flower, a sight that can be quite an inspiration to many a gardener.

As we grow most of the plants ourselves we carry huge stocks, upwards of 2000 varieties, and customers are encouraged to wander freely.


The sales area

We have a well stocked  sales area which holds a large proportion of what we sell, however the 'best bits' are usually tucked away in a corner of the 3 acre nursery somewhere and finding these has kept many an avid collector busy for many hours, gleefully routing through nearly 40 polytunnels.

Customers are encouraged to 'wander' around the majority of the working nursery,  after all we are all gardeners and the plants in the 'no-entry' areas are always annoying seemingly  better, bigger and with more flowers.There may be an occasion when the plants that you find are 'not for sale' plants , but these can be ordered if necessary for collection/delivery at a later date.  A long time ago we decided that we would keep the 'no go' areas to an absolute minimum, and generally customer prefer this approach.


Some of our terracotta pot range

In our sales area you will also find a large selection of ceramic and potsterracotta pots and a range of 'Dragonstone' ornate statues and planters.
