Welcome to the 2017 programme of talks and open days at Llanover Garden School.
The Garden will be open on Sunday 2nd April from 2-5pm for the NGS. The supporters of St Bartholomews Church will be baking and selling their delicious home-made cakes to enjoy whilst Gwerinyr Gwent perform traditional Welsh dances in costume to the sound of the Harp. There will be a Rare Plant Fair, attended by 17 specialist nurseries on Sunday 17th September, 11am - 4pm. The £5 entrance fee includes access to the Garden. Enjoy a freshly cooked Bacon butty and Welsh cake for brunch, lunch or tea!
Groups are welcome by appointment throughout the year, so if you would like to bring a gardening club, specialist society or general interest group, please do contact me for more details. A visit to Llanover combines well with other gardens such as The Laskett, Kentchurch Court & Allt -y-bela. Other options, within an hours driving distance are Raglan Castle and Tintern Abbey.
The March Garden School days with Helen Yemm, Fergus Garrett and Petersham Nurseries are fully booked. Cancellations may occur so if you would like to be added to the waiting list, please do email me.
In October 2017, I am delighted to announce that Isabel and Julian Bannerman, Alan Power and Paul Picton will be speaking here for the first time. More details will follow soon.
Peter Hall, the Head Gardener at Llanover continues to use his wealth of experience and knowledge in the herbaceous borders, streamside plantings, arboretum and meadows. Thousands of perennials, shrubs, trees, roses and bulbs have been planted, new or alternative paths have been laid. The garden has never looked better in my lifetime – come see and decide for yourselves!
After an enjoyable visit to Llanover please consider buying a gift voucher for a friend, “like” Llanover Garden School on Facebook or post an 'Instagram'.
With best wishes
