Stanley Smith (UK) Horticultural Trust helps Stone Lane Gardens

Every tree in Stone Lane Gardens arboretum has a new, high-quality label thanks to a grant from the Stanley Smith (UK) Horticultural Trust.

Supplied by Sheen Botanical Labels, the engraved labels were originally designed for the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and will be used to help visitors identify tree species, origin and provenance.

Stone Lane, near Chagford, Dartmoor, is the National Collection Holder of wild-origin birch and alder trees.

It is a non-profit organisation conserving and researching birch and alder trees on behalf of the public.

Stone Lane Gardens manager Paul Bartlett said it was a project he had wanted to carry out for a long time but that it had only been possible with help from the Stanley Smith (UK) Horticultural Trust.

The garden is open all year round, with more than 1,000 trees in the collections.
