Create A Perennial Wildflower Meadow Workshop

In stock

Please note - dates for this workshop have been postponed due to coronavirus. 

Spend a day at Common Farm Flowers in Somerset, where their 3/4 acre wildflower meadow has been created with loving care and attention over the past twelve years.

See the meadow in full flower, look at the species which flourish there, work out how you too can take the lessons that Fabrizio Boccha and Georgie Newbery have learned during the creation of this wonderful space, and create your own meadow. Whether you want to turn a narrow strip of land into a haven for birds and butterflies, or have an actual meadow you want to return to a flowery state, Georgie and Fabrizio will advise and encourage you.

During the course of the day you will:

  • Tour the meadows at Common Farm Flowers
  • Look at their different environments and learn about how the earth is managed to encourage perennial wild flower species to flourish there
  • Sow wildflower seeds so that you'll have plug plants to plant into your own meadow land in September
  • Take home lists of reliable suppliers of wildflower seeds/plug plants

We have lost 90% of our wildflower meadows in the UK since WWII. Be part of the movement to reestablish our native wildflower species, a beautiful way to feed some of the most vulnerable species on the food chain.

The workshop takes place between 10am - 1pm and the cost of the morning includes refreshments. All our workshops include delicious refreshments so please advise us of any food allergies and intolerances at the time of booking.

There will be a maximum of 10 people on this workshop.

What can you expect when you order our flowers?
Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
