There has been a lot of activity around the garden as a whole – you may have seen the channels that have been dug by staff and volunteers using specialist machinery. Electricity cables, water supply pipes and drainage pipes are now being buried in these. Later in the garden restoration project, power to the Bamboo Garden will enable the pond to be pumped and beyond the scope of the project the infrastructure will be in place to further develop and support areas such as the Plantation for holding events, an additional greenhouse for the Kitchen Garden and lighting in the car park.
