Harry’s Garden at Butterfly World (opening June 2009)

Friends, teammates & family including those from Harry’s lunch (Sept 2008), Jack & Jill Playgroup, Quoitings Playgroup & Spinfield School have been busy growing sunflowers & sweetpeas to plant up in Harry’s Garden.

Fern Alder, the designer is working on site and the garden is beginning to take shape ready for Press Day on June 4th. The garden incorporates sporting references (including rugby posts!), a giant hedgehog made from grasses, a wild flower bank, ball shaped flowers and woven willow branches. A local farmer donated the straw bales (ref cricket!) and June Kingsbury has created some wonderful scuptured feature rugby balls, footballs and minature hedgehogs.

From then on, visitors will be able to tour not only Harry’s Garden, but also the Future Gardens Competition gardens, and the Butterfly World site. There will be a temporary Butterfly House until the main dome opens in 2010 and having recently visited the site, it is really impressive.
