Garden Design

Flowers bringing beauty to community spaces

Get involved with designing our community garden.

We want this to be an inclusive space for everyone in the village and that includes being a part of how it looks. So we want your ideas on how the garden will look.

The comments book is in the Reading Room and will be available for any ideas but we also want you to have a play with how the garden could look.

Why not download a copy of the garden design and have a go at your own version of the design, it’s very likely that the end result will be an amalgam of all the ideas.

Garden fencing is now in place

We have been busy in the garden again, with thanks to Llansadwrn Community Council who have paid for fence which now defines the boundary of the garden. We will be softening the fencing with climbing plants and a hedgeline, but for now we really needed to define the edge and protect the new plants from the potential of wandering stock.

A great job was done by Rob Brown of First Class Fencing (as expected) who very kindly gave us an exceptionally good price for what was an extremely difficult job. Every post had to be driven into bedrock to make fence secure. Not on easy job on a hot spring day.

Our next meeting will be focussed very much on the plants we want to grow and where we want to grow them. Join us Saturday 4th May – venue tbc.

Garden project – planting in Easter holidays

Plant your beans and your sweetcorn

The community garden is hoping to get everybody together during the Easter holidays to plant up some beans, sweetcorn and some sunflowers. Time to start saving your pots.

We will confirm the date nearer the time.

We would also like your ideas and thoughts on the garden. There is a board up in the Reading Room, along with the comments book which we will use as a basis for a funding application.

We will also be doing a community consultation which will be available online in the very near future.

First planting

The first work in Llansadwrn’s community garden took place on Saturday, 2nd Feb. A group of hardy volunteers braved near zero temperatures to break through snow and ice to plant the Garden’s first apple trees and a collection of snowdrops and bluebells.

The two trees we planted were Pig yr Wydd – a Llanwrda local variety that does well and a Sunset which is an apple cultivar that arose as a seedling from Cox’s Orange Pippin.

Our next planting session will take place on Saturday 16th February setting out from the Reading Room at 10.30am. If you’d like to join us please do even if it’s just to see what we’re up to!

Thank you to Dolau Hirion Trees and the Works garden centre for their support.
