SCITUATE – With the early stages of the Richmond Mill Bell Garden in the ground, the Scituate Gentian Garden Club plans to put at least 80 more native plants in the garden to help beautify the town and preserve history.

According to Gentian Garden Club Spokesperson Carol Horta, the club planted a tree, 12 shrubs, 85 potted plants and four perennials at the Richmond Mill Bell, which is at the entrance to the Smithville Cemetery off of West Greenville Road.
