Training to the fore at Belle Vue Park

A training scheme for heritage horticulturalists in Wales staged its annual open day this week at Belle Vue Park in South Wales.

Three of last year's trainees 'graduated' with grass-covered mortar boards. The trainees, Claire Poynter from Milford Haven; Ruth Morris from Narbeth and Adam Freeman from Pembroke, all received training at Picton Castle in Pembrokeshire.

The scheme's trainees are based in six gardens around Wales: Aberglasney; Bodnant; Dyffryn; Picton Castle and Gardens; St Fagans: National History Museum; Bute Park in Cardiff and Belle Vue Park in Newport.
