Ben and Ros Walcott opened their magnificent native garden under the Open Garden scheme on 26/27 October. Development of the garden started in 2003 and now has over 4000 native plants representing over 700 different species. The meadow is especially interesting and was planted in 2003 with over 20,000 grasses, lilies and forb seedlings.

The Friends provided guides and volunteers on the gate to support this event and the Walcotts have generously donated part of the proceeds to the Friends. The Friends are very grateful to the Walcotts for this support and hopefully will have the chance to be involved in a future opening.
