Our annual Open Day and Plant Fair.
Ceredigion and district's best independent plant nurseries will once again set up home on the lawns of Cae Hir for the day, offering a host of plants from the specialist to the old-fashioned and hard-to-come-by. The nursery owners are on hand to offer their expertise and knowledge to both novice and seasoned gardener alike. Just remember - the early bird catches the worm!
The Garden will open free of charge, and refreshments will be available in the Tea Room. Parking for this event is in the school playground opposite the gardens, and costs £2 per car.

As always we will be at this annual fixture of the Aberaeron calendar with our mobile tea room!
Organised by the Ceredigion and District Growers Association this is one of Aberaeron's largest events of the season, and a great place to browse for both plants and gifts/crafts.
We will be in the marquee serving our famous scones with jam and clotted cream, and a selection of homemade cakes and treats. Tea and 'proper' coffee are a staple of course! Come and find us - we have tables both inside and out...
Flower Arranging Workshop with Alex Hales - TBA
Join Alex Hales, founder of award winning florist No21 Flowers in Aberystwyth for a workshop celebrating our 30th open year.
Following the workshop you will indulge in a delicious home made cream tea before going on a guided stroll around the garden to see where the flowers used in your posy were harvested from - you will also be given tips on the do's and don'ts of harvesting from your own garden.
We are limited to 20 places so please book early to avoid disappointment.
