UK's National Wildflower Centre is no more

To all our wonderful followers,

With great sadness Trustees have decided to close the National Wildflower Centre and related businesses in February 2017.

After 16-years of being at the heart of the community, and 41-years since the charity was first established, Trustees have made the difficult decision to wind down all business operations.

Trustees, staff and volunteers would like to thank all our loyal, wonderful customers and visitors who have been part of our wildflower journey.

Trustees would also like to thank our fabulous dedicated staff and volunteers who have worked so hard over the years.

Official statement:

This was UK's main hoard of native wild flower seeds.

Established in 1975, the National Wildflower Centre is a pioneer of creative conservation with a great track record in establishing new wildflower meadows and landscapes for the benefit of people and wildlife, often in areas with the greatest social and environmental justice demands. The National Wildflower Centre’s approach has been highly innovative, its techniques delivering and informing the recreation of our wildlife through rewilding projects throughout the UK and beyond.
