Mandy lines up tree event

Have your say

WRITER Mandy Haggith is leading a national project that celebrates the traditional Scottish link between trees and writing at the Botanic Gardens.

It will take place on Sunday from 2pm.

Known as the Tree Ogham, or Tree Alphabet, each letter of the Gaelic alphabet has an associated tree or shrub.

Mandy is organising a series of creative writing events in woods and gardens around Scotland, one for each letter and species. The events are happening as part of the International Year of Forests.
