Creekside Discovery Centre – Activities coming up

Dear Andrea,

Mellow Yellow in May – despite the draught we are currently experiencing, we have some mellow yellow wildflowers appearing around the site.

This year we are hosting a series of Wildflowers Pop-ups to give you a chance to see more of the spectacular wildflowers at Creekside. Each Pop-up will have a defferent theme and focus species. Our upcoming Wildflower Pop-up (details below) theme is “Mellow Yellow in May” with a wild mixture of cabbages and coposites all really wild in a real London habitat. Hawk’s-beards, Rockets, Cresses, Ragworts and Buttercups; and don’t forget the three colours: white red and blue.

Below details on:
