Last Saturday a dozen members visited Sue and David Beasley’s garden near Trawsfynedd. Alongside the garden Sue and David also own land which Sue uses for her Shetland ponies. Part of their garden has been given over to highly productive greenhouse and polytunnels where they grow their own vegetables. They also have chickens, ducks and the most beautiful view over the lake and the mountains.
On the day that the garden club visited, the weather was perfect. After coffee, tea and cake we wondered slowly around the garden near the farm-house, before ambling partway up the mountain, which, because sheep have not cropped the grass for 15 years has an interesting array of wildflowers. It was a most enjoyable few hours and big thanks go to Sue and David for sharing their garden and land with us.

Just a reminder that in 2 weeks time we will be welcoming John Massey MBE VMH to talk to the gardening club. This meeting will be in the Village Hall in Dyffryn. Tickets are free for members and £5.00 for non members. I look forward to seeing you there.
