My books


No Dig Organic Home and Garden and The Creative Kitchen will be for sale in the Garden Shop and I can sign/dedicate them for you.

Getting there


The botanic gardens are located near Camarthen in Camarthenshire, Wales – just off the M4 and the A48. The nearest station is in Camarthen 8 miles away – there is a limited bus service from the station, and usually plenty of taxis (their numbers are here). There is also a train station 10 miles away at Llandeilo.

For cyclists, the gardens are on the Camarthen-Llanelli loop on the National Cycle Network Route 47 (also known as the Celtic Trail).

Find out how to get there here.

These courses are funded


These courses are delivered as part of Growing The Future and are funded through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government., hence the bargain price of only £20.
