Birch Hill (Area E)

Birch Hill is the highest point in the Gardens, and protects areas lying to the south from strong north-westerly winds. More ornamental trees have been added to the existing stands, especially a range of birch species and varieties. Spring bulb displays have been augmented, and the ground flora made more diverse and colourful.

This work is being undertaken by the Gardens' staff and FOBs volunteers.
