Welcome

Welcome to the website for Dyffryn and Talybont Gardening Club.

We are a friendly and lively garden club serving Dyffryn Ardudwy and surrounding areas. Our meetings are held on the second Monday of every month in the Church Hall in Dyffryn Ardudwy at 7.00 p.m.

We have a varied programme of speakers throughout the year covering a wide range of gardening and horticultural related topics. We also arrange at least one ‘Garden Visit’ during the summer months.

The skill level of our members range from husband, wife or partner of a gardener to expert – so all levels of expertise are welcome; please do not feel you have to be a ‘good gardener'”!

A highlight of our yearly programme is the summer show, which takes place in August at the Village Hall in Dyffryn Ardudwy. We also put on a Spring Show in March (in the Church Hall).

Our membership fee for the year is £5.00 and this covers your entry into the monthly meeting, with tea and coffee provided. At the monthly meeting we hold a raffle. There is also a sales table, where members may donate plants, spare produce, home-made jams. The monies raised by the sales table goes to our chosen charity. Each year the club supports a local charity, and currently it is the Air Ambulance.

If you would like to know more about our gardening club, please do not hesitate to contact me using the contact form.  If you would like to pop along to one of our meetings as a guest, I would be delighted to meet you, ‘show you the ropes’ and introduce you to other members. If you are holidaying in the area and would like to come to one of meetings, we would be happy to welcome you as a guest.

If this is your first visit, please use the buttons under the picture at the top of the page to explore our website. The most recent events will be found under ‘home’.

I look forward to meeting you.

Karen Hall,
Chairman,
on behalf of Dyffryn and Talybont Gardening Club.

Summer show, 2017

Every year it seems that the summer show can’t get more colourful or more inspiring, and every year it does. There were some beautiful blooms,

like this hydrangea (which won best in show for its section, unsurprisingly), some perfect vegetables, amazing flower arrangements, amd mouthwatering cakes, bakes, pickles, jams, wines, fruit spirits…

It was, yet again, impressive just how so many of the entrants in the vegetable, fruit and flowers classes had achieved such good results given the rather peculiar weather we’ve been having.

But it’s still worth entering, even if you think your geranium or dahlia or marrow or garlic is not up to scratch – you might just be expecting impossible levels of perfection. The only thing we would prefer not to see is wildlife – caterpillars, basically, though slugs are also unwelcome. And, of course, there’s always the produce table to tempt!

Here’s a gallery from the day; just click on an image for a slideshow. Huge thanks to everyone who made the day such as success, and congratulations to all the entrants!
