Outdoor Event, 10.30am
This is a great opportunity to be guided round this famous Arboretum by its very well informed head gardener, Robert Jamieson. The Arbotetum covers about 65 acres and has over 11,000 trees and shrubs, planted from 1988. We will also have an opportunity to see some native plants at Howick Burn mouth. There is an entry charge of Â£6 per person (Â£5 for over 60s), payable on the day, plus Â£30 for Robert’s time (which we will collect among ourselves). Meet in the car park for Howick Garden; it is well signed from the B1339 about 1 mile north of Longhoughton. Post code for satnavs NE66 3LB. Bring lunch.
This event is led by Robert Jamieson
