This month’s Little Seedlings content is all about the wonders of wildflowers. We’ll look at the earliest wildflowers in history, as well as the most common British wildflowers of today. We’ll learn how to “un-garden” by planting wildflowers in our garden and learn how they spread in the wild. Finally, we’ll discuss the importance of wildflowers and their many benefits to humans, animals, and the environment.

The workshop will cover:

  • The history of wildflowers and the oldest known wildflower
  • Common types of British wildflower children may be familiar with
  • More unknown wildflowers in the UK
  • Safety around wildflowers and edible plants
  • Growing wildflowers in your garden and ‘un-gardening’ 
  • Planting your own wildflower meadow
  • The anatomy of a flower and its different parts
  • How wildflowers are spread in the wild (pollination)
  • The importance and benefits of wildflowers and wild green spaces
