considered that it was merely a variant but recent re-examination and DNA sequence analysis has

Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden's 40th anniversary year. The restoration of the West Garden.

The first phase of the project is the restoration of a candelabra primula bed, which has been eroded over a number of years by the high tides that find their way up the dykes into the garden.
