Abergele Garden Society

Cymdeithas Arddio Abergele

 

The next meeting of the Abergele Garden Society will take place on Monday 12th September 2022 at Mynydd Seion Meeting Room, Llanfair Road, Abergele LL22 7AW.  The Society will welcome Sue Beesley, who will give a presentation entitled “Perennials”.

Sue has been a keen amateur gardener since her teens and entered and won BBC Gardener of the Year in 2006.  It was whilst she was looking for plants to build her competition garden with that she discovered Bluebell Cottage Gardens and Nursery in a rundown state.   After winning the competition, Sue and her husband bought the cottage, nursery, gardens and adjacent meadow and bluebell woods, and Sue now runs the nursery and garden full time.

The gardens encompass wide herbaceous borders displaying over 2000 varieties of hardy trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and climbers.  As well as the garden area itself, there is also a wildflower meadow, bluebell woodland and a nursery, which specialises in over 700 varieties of flowering perennials, with the majority of plants being propagated and grown on site.

The gardens and nursery are open April to September on a Wednesday to Saturday.   For further information about the garden, nursery and tearoom, please go to www.bluebellcottage.co.uk

 

At Abergele Garden Society everyone is welcome to come along to our talks - existing Society members, as well as anyone who just wants to find out a bit more about gardening and gardens, and meet some like-minded, friendly people.  

 

Abergele Garden Society meets the second Monday of every month (except December and January) in Mynydd Seion Chapel Rooms, Llanfair Road, Abergele, LL22 7AW. Annual membership is £10 single, £15 for a couple, payable in April. We are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society which bestows a number of benefits on our members.   If you have any questions about our meetings or the Society in general, contact Wendy Price, secretary, via the website link (www.abergele gardensociety.org.uk) where we also list our speakers’ programme on our Calendar of Events page.
