Grow Wildflowers For The Community

Our Plan

During the summer months we are hoping to grow as many wildflowers as possible to replant later in the year at Washdyke Lane recreation area and other parts of the town.

We are trying to involve individuals, schools and community groups in this exciting project.

The date has been set !

Saturday 20th May from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm at Washdyke Lane Recreation Area.

Please bring your wildflowers and a spade or trowel if possible.

If you cannot make it on the day, please contact us at and one of our volunteers will be in touch to arrange to collect your wildflowers and plant them on your behalf.

If you would like to register for 2024, which seems like a long way off, then please fill out the form below.


Firstly just register your interest.

Let us know if you will be growing in pots, planters or in the soil. 

Let us know your ability to grow plants so that we know if you will need help, and let us know if you will need pots and compost.


    Step 2

    One of our volunteers will arrange to deliver your wildflower seeds as well as anything else you may need and give you some advice on caring for your wildflowers in the coming months.

    Step 3

    Give your wildflowers a bit of TLC in the coming months. If you have any questions about looking after them, you only have to ask.

    Step 4

    Later this year we will contact you to notify you where and when we intend to plant the wildflowers at their new location. All you have to do is carefully dig yours up and transport them to the event and help to plant them, or if you are unable to dig them up or make it on the day one of our volunteers will come and do that for you.

    Step 5

    Enjoy your flowers.

    Please keep visiting the area where your flowers have been planted and enjoy what they have to offer.

    Our Thanks
