A GARDEN designed by a Codicote man will be taking centre stage in a pioneering conservation project over the next three months.
Peter Thomas, a professional garden designer, beat competition from more than 100 hopefuls to create one of 12 gardens for an exhibition at Butterfly World near St Albans.
The 50-year-old designed a garden called Metamorphosis, which features a profusion of wildflowers set against a man-made backdrop.
It also incorporates 288 model butterflies, which were painted by children at Codicote Primary School.

"It is an exhibition garden," he said.
"I am more accustomed to designing gardens for people so I take my brief from the person who is going to live with and enjoy the garden."
Peter, originally from Australia, added he would like to design a similar garden at some point in the future.
"I enjoyed it and I would like to do it again, very much," he said.
Peter's garden will be on display at Butterfly World, in Chiswell Green, until October.
