A gardening expert has set out his plans for a major renovation project in the grounds of a Devon daycare centre.

Michael Hickson, the former head gardener of the Knightshayes Garden Trust, has volunteered to design and oversee the work in the two-acre wooded grounds of Pine Lodge, a former residential home which was recently acquired by Hospiscare, reported.

According to the website, Mr Hickson's design includes a gazebo and scented garden alongside the day centre, as well as a boundary of shrubs. This could offer scope for the addition of a stylish garden building like an African thatched gazebo.

"The current willow and birch coppice is to be planted with snow drops and wild daffodils and existing hedgerow trees will be enchanced with hazel and holly to encourage birds and hopefully dormice whilst also screening the garden," added the site.

It was revealed that Hospiscare bought Pine Lodge with the aid of a Department of Health grant and is now seeking to raise £250,000 to convert it into "a thriving multi-function centre".
