Green-fingered volunteers are branching out to create a garden at the Midlothian Community Hospital.

If the seeds bear fruit, their hard work will result in a beautiful community garden, complete with fruit trees, a vegetable patch, wetland area and wild flower meadow.

Garden co-ordinator Daisy Muir told the Advertiser: “It’s very early in the development stage – we are just finishing putting in hard standing paths so that wheelchair users can access and enjoy the space, and we’re in the middle of putting in rabbit-proof fencing.”

The gardens, at Eskbank Road in Bonnyrigg, are managed by the Cyrenians on behalf of the NHS. They have a focus on improving health and wellbeing, and giving people a route back into employment by volunteering.
