Winter Talks

To help alleviate the winter gloom Richard and Donald are each presenting a talk looking forward to spring and summer when wild flowers will once again brighten up our countryside and gardens.

Donald is giving a presentation in Bath describing the rare and interesting wild flowers found in the countryside around Bath where we farm. This is a botanically rich and interesting area with limestone soils from which we collect many of our wild flower seed stocks, including our St Catherine seed mix.

Richard will be talking about working with nature and introducing wild plants in to gardens for pleasure and to maximise biodiversity and wildlife benefits. In the context of ‘working with nature' he will focus on following natures designs by creating natural plant communities such as wild flower meadows. He will also discuss the ongoing maintenance essential for meadows and how scythes can be the key to success in this endeavour.
