The community is being asked to help put in some spadework to help plant 70 metre long hedge at the 18th century walled garden at Amisfield, Haddington, later this month.

The eight acre horticultural haven, formerly part of an estate owned by the Earl of Wemyss and March, is being restored to its former glory by a team of enthusiastic volunteers. Native plant species are being chosen to provide nectar, berries and shelter in an effort to attract a variety of insects, birds and mammals.

The walled garden, one of the largest in Scotland, is owned by East Lothian Council and leased to local charity, the Amisfield Preservation Trust.
