Event Description

HIGH BEECHES WOODLAND AND WATER GARDEN

Heavy Horses will be working on the Wildflower meadow,

Come and see the Heavy Horses harrowing the wildflower meadow.  Harrowing , after the grass is cut,  is an important part of the management of a wildflower meadow as it removes the thatch and opens up the sward so that the seed can germinate.  This work is better done by horses as they don’t compact the ground like a tractor.  Enjoy a walk in a beautiful woodland garden where the blue willow gentians will be in flower, this is the only place in the country where they have naturalised.

Plants from Rapkyns Nursery and crafts for sale.
