The Gardening Group meets on the 1st Tuesday morning of each month. More members are always welcome. During the winter – other than our Christmas coffee and cake visit to a local gardening centre - we meet at Williams Court at 10 am. Our members are diverse: some have a lifelong, even professional interest, but others are new to gardening and meeting the challenges of the Pembrokeshire climate for the first time. We are a friendly group and welcome new members. We also circulate information about local gardening events, as well as useful information - for example: B&Q will recycle plastic flower pots if they are mounting up in your shed!
During the warmer months (April to September) we are out and about visiting local gardens, mostly drawn from the National Open Garden Scheme. As well as being stimulated and inspired by the gardens, there is of course the cake, and the knowledge that the entrance fees are distributed among charities such as Macmillan Nurses. Members of the Group co-ordinate each group visit and need to be informed if you wish to join us. Details of the person to contact are published in each month’s U3A diary.
In March 2020 we have our final indoor meeting when Dr Robert Llewellyn Davies is giving a presentation on succulents. Dr Davies has informed and entertained U3A members already with excellent presentations at the Monthly Meetings, and we look forward to hearing him again. Other treats in store in our summer programme: a visit to Lamphey walled garden that contains thirty different varieties of bearded iris, a return visit to an exciting plantaholics garden, and finally to the large composting and recycling centre near Carmarthen where Merlin’s Magic compost is made.
