Admission by donation.
Nominated charity: Dalrymple, Skeldon and Hollybush Project 60%.
Description: Opened in September 2019, the garden, situated opposite the shops in Barbieston Road, is run by a dedicated team of volunteers; part of the Dalrymple, Skeldon and Hollybush Project. A large central lawn is surrounded by extensive areas of original meadow turf and already we have seen the appearance of wildflowers, with a concomitant increase in insect diversity, and the appearance of butterflies associated with wild grasses. Damselflies and amphibians have begun to visit the two ponds. We have planted several thousand spring bulbs including snake’s head fritillaries and camassias and as the new year progresses we will be adding willows and other native shrubs to provide a richer habitat.
