Garden & Nursery Visit – Newport Garden Club
5th June 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm| £3.95
The 3.5 acre garden and nursery are both open as is the Art & Craft Studio. Any orders placed before your visit will be ready for collection or you can just browse at your leisure! The nursery and studio accept debit and credit card payments as well as cheques or cash.
Wern Rhos was originally the Gamekeeper’s Cottage for the Cilwendeg Estate and the neglected gardens are slowly under restoration. There is a large pond, woodland walk, bluebell wood, mature trees and several herbaceous borders, together with a stream and orchard. Cottage garden favourites mix happilyy with rare and unusual perennials, climbers and Hostas. The half acre nursery specialises in bog and waterside plants, ferns, hardy geraniums together with shade and woodland plants. There are no display tables as we are a working nursery, but all plants are informatively labelled and advice freely available. All plants are organised alphabetically and we offer nearly 500 different perennial varieties.
The Art & Craft studio is ultra modern and set at the end of the garden. Art works in watercolour, acrylic and oils are displayed and there is also work in Fibreart and craftwork in felt, especially scarves and cushions. Heather-Jane will be on hand to assist with enquiries.
The garden itself is fairly level and easily accessible with only a few steps in the woodland walk. We recommend sensible shoes if dry and waterproof ones if it is wet as there is a lot of grass! Our ‘Strawberry Tea’ is served on the patio and we offer decaffeinated tea or coffee, juice and a selection of cakes together with strawberries of course! Special diets can be catered for if advanced notice is given. Toilet facilities are available.
We look forward to your visit.
