Volunteer training at the Botanic Cottage
Some of the supporting Garden Volunteers were fortunate to hear Jane Corrie in the Botanic Cottage. Jane was part of the project which saw the Botanic Cottage transported from Leith Walk, stone by stone, rebuilt and re-opened in 2016.
In these sessions, Jane skillfully told the wonderful, insightful and curious story of the Cottage: home of the principal gardener but also the main entrance to the Garden, it was built in 1764-65 from a design by the renowned architects John Adam and James Craig.

The project is supported by players of People Postcode Lottery
