Car­marthen & Dis­trict Gar­den­ing Club

Carmarthen Journal - - Living In: Community News -

THE speaker at the Oc­to­ber meet­ing was our very own Bethan Charles, whose talk was en­ti­tled A Car­marthen Gar­den.

Her talk fo­cused on her own gar­den at Nant yr Arian, with Bethan us­ing her slide show to take us through the his­tory of the gar­den, and how she has de­signed and main­tained her gar­den over the years.

It was clear that Bethan has a great pas­sion for the art of gar­den­ing, which com­bined with her artis­tic flair, im­mense knowl­edge of gar­den­ing and the cul­ti­va­tion of plants, has en­abled her to cre­ate an area of real beauty.

She is clearly a very ac­com­plished gar­dener who finds in gar­den­ing her one op­por­tu­nity to be truly cre­ative. Bethan be­lieves the gar­den is a place for the soul: she en­joys the hard work, the art of gar­den­ing, the colour and the scene she cre­ates, ex­per­i­ment­ing all the while. She re­ferred to her Clema­tis Face­book group and the ad­vice she re­ceives from all around the world, in­clud­ing from some­one in New Zealand.

Meet­ings are held on the first Mon­day of the month in the Car­marthen In­door Bowls Club, Pic­ton Ter­race, Car­marthen, at 7pm, un­less it is a bank hol­i­day and then it will be the sec­ond Mon­day. Mem­bers are en­cour­aged to bring along a guest for a nom­i­nal charge of £1.
