Abney's open rides are a haven for a variety of wild plants and flowers. Spring is a wonderful time to wander through a riot of green dotted with delicate flowers in all colours. The pretty pink flowers of herb robert attract bees. Wild garlic sports spiky balls of white petals. And bluebells and crocuses cluster together in riots of colour.

What may look like neglected overgrown ground is valuable habitat: nettles and grasses are needed by butterflies and their caterpillars to feed and breed.

Remember - Abney is a nature reserve so please don't pick anything and leave the flowers and plants for others to enjoy.
