ABOUT THE BIG BULB PLANT

The Knutsford Big Bulb Plant is part of the Knutsford Nature Action Plan, a series of steps we are taking to improve the town for wildlife. By planting a number of spring bulbs, not only will the town look beautiful for humans it will provide pollinators with some early food too. We ran the first Big Bulb Plant for two weeks in October 2021, its now back for the whole of October 2022.

We are supporting the community in hosting local bulb planting events. We’re providing event hosts with an assortment of suitable bulbs for them to lead a bulb planting event in their local area. You can find the events registered with us below!

HOST AN EVENT
