Three Zigzag Gardens launched!

The first three Zigzag Gardens in the Central Valley of the Arboretum were launched on 28 March, having been planted last December. They are a stunning example of how wonderful this Valley will look when all the Zigzag Gardens are complete.


Warm up for Warm Trees 2019!

The weather is starting to get cooler and it will soon be time for daylight saving to end so more time to knit and crochet in the evenings. In July we will make the National Arboretum even more spectacular than it already is and our efforts also go towards helping charities once the display is over. Our diplomatic partner for 2019 is the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Our themes for this year will be colourful tulips and amazing bicycles. And the theme colour for the scarves will be orange (which is the royal colour for the Netherlands).
