The Barton woodland burial ground is a very special site
Despite being man made, we wish for as natural an environment as possible. A large part of this means that everything planted should be, ideally, indigenous to East Anglia and suited to meadows.
We have created a PDF guide (link below) that lists some of the most popular wildflower types that do well at Barton, together with some 'how to do it' guidance. Please take the time to read it.
Only British wildflowers can be planted at Barton. If in any doubt, please ask before purchase because inappropriate plants will be removed. Unfortunately garden centres sell plants that are NOT proper wildflower species, for example, brightly coloured primulas which are not allowed.
Some plants and wildflower seeds are regularly available for sale when the lodge is open on Wednesdays. Meet Carole the plant lady between 10am and 12 noon.
Cut flowers should be laid flat without ribbon, wire, cellophane or paper. As part of our Wednesday inspection any dead flowers will be removed. If you are replacing flowers, please use the green wheelie bins provided to dispose of the old ones. These are located in the North Glebe (1 bin) and the car park (2 bins). Any non-green items [cellophane, plant pots, cans etc] go in the blue bins.
Artificial flowers, ornaments, stones, balloons, lanterns, vases, flowerpots or other 'garden' items are not permitted and will be removed straight away.
