This year it is in aid of SSAFA, the military charity that supplies lifelong support for our forces and their families as well as Brecon Cathedral. It will be held at Treberfydd by kind invitation of Carla Rapaport and David Raikes.
The plants on offer will be perennials, shrubs and trees, white and silver plants, as well as annuals, vegetable plants, herbs, houseplants, produce and a white elephant stall. There will also be coffee, home-made light lunches and a wine bar. Lavender farmer Nancy Durham will be on hand with a table of her Farmers' body creams, lavender flowers and Welsh Lavender Chocolate all of which start life on her Powys hill farm. The hosts, Carla and David, will give guided tours of the Grade 1 Listed Gothic Revival house, on the hour from 11 o’clock.
The adjacent Walled Garden Nursery, run by Alison Sparshatt, which has recently been revitalized, is another interesting place to visit and where you will also be able to buy plants. Carla and David, Alison and Nancy will be giving a percentage to the charities. There are also two small art exhibitions, one in the conservatory of the house and the second in the walled garden. Last but not least, Army Cadets will be on hand to barrow purchases to cars.
