EVENTS

We hold events throughout the year, from willow-weaving workshops to wildflower identification courses.

The Really Wild Flower Show

1st Annual Show to be held as part of the Natural Surroundings Wildflower Festival

Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June 2024. 11am till 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Guided walks on both days.

A horticultural show with a twist – not a vegetable in sight but a celebration of our wild flowers at one of the best times of the year. If you would like to take part, please email wildlife@naturalsurroundings.info or pop in to Natural Surroundings for a show schedule. There are ten classes to enter, 6 floral displays/pots, 2 arts and crafts and a childrens art competition.  Our nursery staff are on hand to help you with recomendations for wild flower choices and with plants/seeds to purchase.  Judging takes place at 10.15am on Saturday morning with the show opening to the public at 11.am.  Do come and join in the fun.

Two events have been held every year, a ‘fungus foray’ in October and the ‘New Year Plant Hunt’ in early January. Our last annual fungus foray took on Friday 27th October 2023, and we were delighted to welcome back Dr Tony Leech as leader. Click on the links below for further details.
