Welcome to Garth Gardeners

We are a gardening group for everyone living around Garth Mountain in South Wales and beyond.  We have a full programme of meetings from September to May and run numerous trips throughout the year.  We are an RHS affiliated society and are always keen to welcome new members and visitors.

Summer Challenge

With only two weeks to go I am sure you’re looking after your geranium to have it at its best for Saturday 3 September. To enter our special class at the Pentyrch Horticultural, Cookery and Craft Show just bring it along to Pentyrch Village Hall between 10.00 and 11.30am on the day.

Hopefully you will be inspired to enter some other classes too. Click here for the full programme.

To see how you, and everyone else, have fared the show opens at 2.30pm. Entrance is £1 and refreshments will be available. We hope you can be there.

Member’s Garden

Spent a lovely hour yesterday in Angie Armitt’s garden, beautifully sculpted on the side of a hill – well, the house is called “The Rise”! This agapanthus was her pride and joy – bought from Pentyrch Open Gardens plant sale a couple of years ago.
