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.

John’s Garden, Kingswinford

One of the highlights of our recent Chester tour was John’s Garden created by its owner, the esteemed  nurseryman, John Massey. If you missed the trip, or are desperate to go again, then Radyr Gardening Club are organising a trip next Wednesday, 28 June, and have spaces available. It’s £24.50 and the coach leaves at 9 am from the memorial in Radyr.
