My thanks to all staff at The Red Lodge Museum in Bristol for their patience, assistance and advice.

Special thanks to Ann Morgan for providing morning access to the Knot Garden, and offering useful information about species and visiting hours.

At the nearby Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Catherine Littlejohns (Curator of Social History) was incredibly helpful with initial contact and granting permission to record during visiting hours; Rhian Rowson (Curator of Natural Sciences) also offered invaluable advice on species.
