Sketty and District Horticultural Society

The purpose of the Society is to provide information on a wide range of gardening and related topics, and to provide friendship. Our members (currently120) cover a wide spectrum of interests and knowledge, but all share an enjoyment of gardens and beauty of nature.

Description of Organisation:
Generally we have a speaker, some refreshments, and then the opportunity to ask questions of our speaker. In April we hold our Spring Show, and have a buffet. This is a popular evening, and the display of spring flowers en masse is truly beautiful. Members are welcome to enter their flowers and potted plants, which are sorted into various classes before judging takes place. At Christmas we have a Social evening, when members bring along their surplus plants, which can be purchased at nominal prices. We organise coach trips to gardens of particular interest usually twice a year. We have been able to arrange discounts with local businesses for your gardening needs.

Address: We meet in the Parish Centre, De la Beche Road, on the 1st Monday of each month, with the exception of August.
