Tuesday 17 May at 6pm, from Montpellier Gardens bandstand

Tree lovers can learn more about planting, general arboriculture and tree management issues at a talk on Tuesday 17 May. Starting at 6pm from Montpellier band stand, people are welcome to come along free of charge to take part in the conducted tree tour.

Led by the council's senior trees officer Chris Chavasse, the walk and talk will focus specifically on Montpellier Gardens.

Chris said:  ''There will be several tree species in flower so there will be plenty to see and hear about.  Whatever the weather,  unless of course there is an electrical storm, I hope that people will come along and take part in what will be an interesting tour around these beautiful gardens.''

The walk will last for about one and a half hours.
