About

We’ll look at the earliest wildflowers in history, as well as the most common British wildflowers of today. We’ll learn how to “un-garden” by planting wildflowers in our garden and learn how they spread in the wild. Finally, we’ll discuss the importance of wildflowers and their many benefits to humans, animals, and the environment.

The workshop will cover:

The history of wildflowers and the oldest known wildflower

Common types of British wildflower children may be familiar with

More unknown wildflowers in the UK

Safety around wildflowers and edible plants

Growing wildflowers in your garden and ‘un-gardening’ 

Planting your own wildflower meadow

The anatomy of a flower and its different parts

How wildflowers are spread in the wild (pollination)

The importance and benefits of wildflowers and wild green spaces
