Wildflower Identification
About the event:
Deepen your love of wildflowers with this one-day workshop at our Grow Wilder site. Here, at our inspiring six-acre wildlife gardening site, we will teach you about the early flowering species, particularly those found in woodlands and roadsides, whose emergence is synonymous with spring.
During your course we will focus on the quickest and simplest identification techniques you can use anywhere. Throughout the day, there will also be plenty of time to appreciate the beauty of wildflowers and discuss their value and importance in relation to local wildlife.
By the end of this course, you should feel confident in putting a name to any wildflower’s petalled face!

Learning outcomes:
Discover more about the life and ecological value of spring wildflowers
Learn how to identify most common UK wildflowers in spring
Develop & practice your identification skills through interactive exercises under expert supervision
