Potters Fields Park supports a huge array of plants and you can now explore them in detail by visiting the planting section on our website; http://pottersfields.co.uk/about-us/planting-in-the-park/
There are over 50 species in the beds and many tree species throughout the park. “Due to the nature of the planting scheme and its sustainable management regime it is considered to be a significant local resource for both foraging and nesting insects“– The Ecology Consultancy.
The colourful herbaceous garden at the back of the park was designed by Piet Oudolf, world famous plantsman who designed the highline in New York.
The naturalistic garden design means that planting is left up over autumn and winter which saves on water and plant replacements. It also encourages wildlife on site.
