Eden stirs up some home-made Chile

THE Eden Project in Cornwall has opened a new permanent garden.

The Chilean arboretum contains around 800 plants of 60 different types and covers a hectare of land by the edge of the Eden pit.
Many of the plants are native to an area of endangered forest in central Chile and it is hoped that some of them could be propagated for reintroduction to the wild.
The entrance to the Chilean arboretum is behind Eden’s Pineapple car park – ideally located for a visit before or after seeing the main site.
Access to the garden is included in the general ticket price to the Eden Project, which offers reduced rates to groups of 10 or more.
