On Saturday October 8th, 2022, we organised a Wildflower Planting event at Centenary Field.
With the help of Cllr. Julian Selman, Frampton Cotterell Nature Group, the Floral Friends, and our fantastic local volunteers, we headed out to the recently mown hay meadow armed with trowels, gloves, and plenty of wildflowers and seeds from Grow Wilder, ready to do some serious planting. We had so much help and such an enthusiastic team of people that we managed to plant 300 wildflower plug plants and 50 patches of wildflower seed in under two hours – amazing!
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along to help! Thank you!
South Gloucestershire Council even came along to film our wildflower planting event to help showcase the great work we are doing with our volunteers to improve nature in Frampton Cotterell. We can’t wait to see their footage!
Planting these wildflowers will go a long way in helping increase biodiversity in the hay meadow. Over the next few years we should see many more flowers and much more colour at Centenary Field. If you are interested in learning more about our plans for improving biodiversity in Frampton Cotterell, take a look at our Climate & Nature Action Plan.
