Llandysul Gardening Weekend

By | Category: Travel news

One of the earliest of gardening events on the calendar happens this weekend in the west Wales town of Landysul. Having attracted so many people from quite a distance, Llanysul will probably become a firm early season fixture for people anxious to get out and do something in their gardens but handicapped by the weather we have had.
So this event is held inside, in Tysul Hall but there will be a number of stands with bulbs, plants and information. Imagine a holiday show but for holidays read gardeners. There are exhibitors and talks to guide you, demonstrations and some experts from leading gardens including Rosetta Plummer from the National Botanic Garden in Carmarthenshire.
But maybe the star will be last year’s RHS gold medal winner, Farmyard Nurseries from the town itself. They will be creating a display on the stage that supposedly will be enough to inspire us all.
Gardens have always been an important aspect of tourism. The number of visitors who go to our national parks and forests has been rising as well. Maybe garden tourism should now be called landscape tourism as we involve ourselves more and more in seeing and understanding what the plant kingdom gives us. We then take ideas and try to replicate them –sometimes in miniature- in our own gardens. As the number of garden shows grows, the number of gardens open to the public increases and the success of the National Gardens Scheme multiplies, travelling to see them must constitute one of the fastest growing aspects of day trips and weekend breaks.
