This years wildflower planting event will be held on Saturday 6th October 2018 between 11:00am and 2:30pm.

Naturescape Wildflower Farm have again agreed to offer bulbs, seeds and plants for sale and you are invited to join us in planting them around your loved one’s grave or tree so that everyone may continue to enjoy the fantastic displays of wildflowers as they grow in the Spring.

Don’t forget your trowel and gardening gloves, let’s give those bees something to visit next year!

Bees at Tithe Green

Spring 2018 saw the introduction of a bee hive at Tithe Green to help with the pollination of wildflowers planted around the Burial Ground.

Throughout the Spring and Summer the bees have been kept very busy pollinating all the wildflowers planted by families along with the wildflowers set in the newer area in 2014 resulting in a very successful crop of honey

Because of this it is planned to keep the hive at Tithe Green over future years, again helping the further development of the wildflowers.

2015 Autumn Wild Flower Planting Event

We look forward to another year of wildflower planting at Tithe Green’s annual wildflower planting event on Saturday 3rd October 2015 and hope for a strong turnout.

Tithe Green’s new area

Hopefully by now, many visitors will have noticed the gorgeous display of wild flowers in the field adjacent to Tithe Green. This is in fact our new area which we are planning to open during 2016.

We decided to fence off and pre-plant the new area with a wildflower seed mix to get the meadow started and this was done last September (2014). This year has seen the initial display of the annual wildflowers and next year should see the emergence of the perennial wildflowers, which it is hoped will then improve year on year.

Tree Planting 2014/2015

The planting season for 2014/2015 has seen the planting of 89 memorial trees comprising 31 oak, 11 rowan, 26 wild cherry, 15 silver birch, 5 field maple and 1 lime trees.

2014 Autumn Wild Flower Planting Event – One For Your Diaries

Tithe Green are proud to announce that following last year’s huge success, this year’s autumn wildflower planting event will be held on Saturday 4th October 2014 from 11.00am to 3.30pm 

The event will again be attended by Naturescape Wild Flower Farm who will have a stall at the Burial Ground selling wildflowers and giving advice and guidance on planting.

We were caught out a little last year by your amazing response to the event and so this year  we hope  to provide a better service and avoid people having to queue.

As a result of last year’s event, spring this year definitely saw an increase in wildflowers at Tithe Green and it is hoped that this year’s event will provide for an even better and more beautiful display next spring.

Following last year’s feedback it is also hoped to have refreshments for sale at the Burial Ground this year.
