THE Little House at Llandinam is open on Sunday

Enjoy late summer at the Little House in Llandinam. At this time of the year cyclamen, grasses, crocosmia, michaelmas daisies and interesting seed heads are all on show and many of the plants have been propagated for sale. 

New for this opening, owners Peter and Pat Ashcroft have been busy creating a little display of carnivorous plants so visitors can sit and enjoy their refreshments while the plants do the same.

Peter says that they'll have to see if that means more or less insects in the short term. The garden can be found by crossing the river at statue of David Davies on A470 in Llandinam and then following the road for just under one metre.

There is limited parking but it is less than a mile on foot from Llandinam village; turn left at Brynhafren, by the letter box, and follow the footpath up Llys Brygolwg and across the fields. The garden is open from 1 until 5pm on Sunday, September 8; admission is £3.50 for adults, children free.

We can look forward to enjoying more autumn colour in gardens open during September and October including those that are open by arrangement.

So if want a special afternoon out for your club or with a group of friends all you need do is contact the owner and arrange a time for an exclusive visit to one of these gardens.

Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors, the National Garden Scheme has donated over £58m to charity since 1927.

Could you help raise even more funds by opening your garden?
