High biodiversity will feature in Scotland's Garden
Appeared on Space For Nature on April 25th 2003
Plans for the new 20 hectare national garden in Scotland will include areas of high biodiversity and features to attract wildlife according to Susan Oliver of the Scotland's Garden Trust.
The Scotland's Garden Trust (SGT) plans to raise £22million to build the garden from scratch on a 20 hectare (50 acre) site south of Perth. Scottish Enterprises has awarded £3million of this target to SGT; enabling work to begin.
The garden should be completed by 2007, employing more than 100 people and drawing around 700,000 visitors annually. If wildlife gardening techniques do figure highly then it could have a very significant influence on the value of British gardens to native wildlife.
