Making the Most of a Small Garden

Today’s speaker is Sheena Crossley. This illustrated talk will look at how anyone can achieve a beautiful garden regardless of size, by combining careful design and planting to create all year round interest.

Sheena is a local horticuluralist, broadcaster and writer. Her involvement in horticulture has included working for Cardiff Parks Department, lecturing in Pencoed College, broadcasting on Radio Wales and organising school workshops.

She was born in Cornwall but now lives in Cardiff. Bats at Bay was her first publication, published by Pont Books in 2008 and the sequel Bats about Wales was published in 2010 (see her page at Waterstones here). Her experiences of the natural world and her role as a grandmother gave her the inspiration to write for children. She regularly visits local schools to hold workshops for children.

Local nurseries will be bringing plants for sale at the meeting.

As this is our last meeting before Christmas, we’ll be laying on teas/coffees and mince pies for everyone.


As with all our meetings, kick off is at 2.00 pm at the Williams Memorial Hall in Coychurch, Bridgend. Click HERE for a location map (note that the miracle that is Google shows the red locator in the wrong place – look for the grey one below and to the left of the red one).

We entertain the speaker to lunch at the nearby White Horse pub before the meeting. Anyone is welcome to join us.
