  • In the last week of April and first week of May the Dorset Wildlife Trust reserve at Kilwood displays one of the finest nature displays in Dorset, absolutely millions of ramsons stretching right across the wood giving a fantastic white carpet as far as you can see. Being also known as wild garlic the woodland has a certain odour to it too!
