This one-day course will teach you how to identify British wildflower species, why they are important to terrestrial ecosystems and how to grow them from scratch.

You will even go away with your own starter kit including a free pot, compost, and wildflower seeds.

This short course will involve a blend of practical hands-on and theoretical learning. So why not roll up your sleeves and get ready to go wild with wildflowers!
