Saturday June 30th and Sunday July 1st: St David's Open Gardens

Daisybus Gardens is sponsoring this local event, and Sarah is giving a talk. Find out more here.

Saturday June 23rd: Drawn Together at Daisybus Gardens

Life Seeker invites you make your mark on Wales with Drawn Together, Wales' largest Community Drawing Project.

10.30 - 12.30pm: stay for 10 mins or 2 hours!
Free entry to draw. Drinks and cakes available to buy from the tea room.

Drawn Together is an exciting pan Wales project, capturing the length and breadth of our people, environment and heritage through the eye of the Wales community.
Everyone in Wales is invited to draw what they see and over time, an interactive map of Wales will become alive through your drawings from castles and beaches, to kitchen sinks and window sills. See the map in progress here.
In October, all of the drawings that have been submitted to the project will be collated as a display in the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff. This will be a fantastic chance to display the community and creativity that Wales has to offer.
 Take time out in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Draw from any part of the gardens or sit and enjoy elevenses whilst sketching outside the tea room. Drawing materials (pencils and communal sketchbooks) will be outside the tea room for you to use.

Monday May 7th. The Darling Bugs of May #bugsrock & The Pollinator Trail

 From May Day Bank Holiday (7th May) and all through May we will be #bugsrock painting!  Paint a bug on a rock, see how many May Bugs you can spot in the garden and have a twirl around the maypole tree.

aisy Bus Gardens is a designated site on  the St Davids Pollinator Trail and is excited to highlight the importance of our bug friends! So come along and start a new trend #bugsrock. Paint a pollinator on a rock and, to spread the word about pollinators, hide it in the garden or somewhere at The Bug Farm for someone else to find. When they do they can put a photo of your rock on social media with the hashtag #bugsrock and #PolliT .  Let’s get pollinators everywhere! 

Tuesday May 1st.  Gardener movement workshop.

An RHS National Gardening Week Event Tuesday 1st May 11am - 2pm 20 per person which includes the workshop, time to explore the gardens, tea/coffee and cake and a 2.50 donation to Perennial, the charity for gardeners. Details here

 April: Daffodils

Kicking off the season on 1st April we invite visitors to enjoy over 50 varieties of narcissi on display in the gardens. We had hoped that the daffs would make their appearnce by St David's day (1st March), but no such luck.    Bulbs can be ordered for planting in autumn using our narcissi guide and we will be welcoming contributions to our Spring Poetry Competition on the theme ‘A Host of Golden Daffodils and Other Thoughts on Spring’.  

April:  Poetry Competition

 Sit in the garden and wait for inspiration or write at home and bring along to stick on our Anonymous Poetry Wall in the Tearoom for everyone to enjoy.  Write your name and email address on the back of your poem.  At the end of April local poet Steve Thorp will choose his favourite poem.

 

 

January and February: “Growing Happiness - Gardening for Wellbeing” 

 A seven week course held each year on Sunday mornings 11am-12noon here in the tearoom at the garden.  An alternative approach to gardening for beginners.  You can see the weekly topics here Sarah aims to inspire you to create your own piece of paradise by encouraging the nervous and dispelling old school gardening myths!

FULLY BOOKED FOR 2018. 

Please email Sarah here for 2019.   The course is also available online
