Wildflower Weekend…over 50 species of native British wildflowers in Central London July 18th & 19th 2009
The Garden Museum's Festival of Small Nurseries continues with a weekend dedicated to native British wildflowers. Renowned Garden Designer Tom Stuart-Smith's favourite wildflower nursery, British Wild Flower Plants of Norfolk, will provide a whole weekend of wildflower expertise.
London gardeners will have the opportunity to buy wild flowers that they can immediately plant in their garden. The nursery's specialism is supplying mixed trays of plug plants that are designed for a specific purpose such as attracting bumblebees and wildlife to the garden or creating a 'green roof' or for specific soil types and conditions.
This is a unique opportunity to meet the growers and see their plants as the nursery is not usually open to the public. Whether you would like advice on how to create a mini-wildflower meadow, how to attract butterflies into your garden or which wildflowers would be best to plant around your wildlife pond, the staff will be on hand to answer your queries.
All plants are from known native British origins and in many cases the seed is collected by the nursery itself. Plants will also be available to order.
The Garden Café will serve 'wild' food and the Museum displays, shop and the gardens will also be open.
Wildflower Weekend 10.30am to 5.00pm both days
Museum admission charges apply.
Early arrival is highly recommended, as we cannot take bookings for this event.
