Gardeners in the Vale were given an insightful talk at a recent meeting.

Garden enthusiasts and admirers gathered for Sully and District Garden Society's meeting on Wednesday, April 24.

They were given an introduction to "No Dig Gardening" instructed by Cardiff horticulturalist Aisling Judge.

Attendees learned about the use of cardboard and mulching techniques to dodge strenuous digging labour, getting enlightened with additional gardening tips. Many of the attendees already knew about this but learnt more valuable tips.

The group is scheduled to meet again at 7.30pm on May 22 at Sully Old School, South Road, Sully, Penarth.

The next meeting will feature Kevin Thomas, a reputed speaker, to present on Victorian Gardens.

Garden plants may be up for grabs and Kevin will be opening up orders for his hanging baskets.

Meetings are regularly held on the fourth Wednesday of each month, except for August, December, and January.

Annual membership is £10 for individuals and £15 for couples.

This arrangement includes a social evening at November's meeting and a chance of a subsidised summer coach trip to an appealing garden.

Everyone is encouraged to drop in and explore if it suits their interests.

They assure warm welcomes.
