THE National Trust desperately requires volunteers who know about mapping to help save its rare collection of rhododendrons at Killerton, near Exeter in Devon. The 20-acre garden contains 95 different kinds. One-fifth of the plants have died, and many of the remainder are suffering from the combined effects of summer drought, winter storms and old age. The volunteers will be asked to tag plants and plot their positions on a map. For further information, contact Andrew Mudge, head gardener at Killerton (0392 881939).
