In July 2022, we installed a forage-packed planter at this London underground station, so expanding TfL’s pollinator corridor across the city.
Northfields Station was designed by Charles Holden and opened in 1932. It is Grade II listed, including the original planters on the forecourt and platforms. Sadly neglected, the planters have been revived by the Trust and we hope to work with station staff and travellers to keep them looking as good as the rest of […]
The platform-length bed at Dorchester South Railway Station was a wildlife haven when we were called in by SW Railway and Swanage Railway. So instead of changing the space, which was abundant with ground nesting birds, pollinators and myriad creepy crawlies, we simply added to what was there already. We planted 78 verbena plants in […]
In June 2022 – and just in time for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships – we installed this wonderful floral planter at Wimbledon Park Railway Station in London. Filled with pollinator-friendly plants, including rosemary and salvias, the planter was made possible thanks to Transport for London and donations from Bloom & Wild.
Ten years ago station staff created a magical secret garden at High Barnet. In recent years it became neglected and forgotten. Our team went in to rediscover it. Hacking through dense undergrowth, like characters in a Grimms’ fairy tale, they uncovered wooden sculptures, two ponds, concrete and wire animals, and thriving wildlife. The area is […]
The new station at Worcestershire Parkway gave us a wonderful opportunity to bring together all our different skills and activities. We built planters, created a large wildflower meadow, made compost bins, and installed some of our unique bug hotels. Plus, in the waiting room, we commissioned a vibrant mural from Alice Baker.
We had furry companionship for the planter installation at Exeter St Thomas. Despite the rain, Otto remained on site to oversee the installation of two planters at the station. Access may have been challenging – all materials had to be carried by hand up four flights of stairs – but the planters join a pre-existing […]
In May 2022, we installed two of our self-watering planters at Exeter Central Station. These planters – one on each side of the tracks – add to our bee-friendly portfolio of GWR supported planters. These planters were perfect for the station – built off site and easily moveable, they were installed with minimal interruption to […]
Exmouth Station is one of the proud owners of our self-watering planters. These planters are also made off site and moveable – so perfect for stations where minimal disruption to station users is a priority. This project adds to our bee-friendly portfolio of GWR supported planters.
We were asked by a local community group to come up with a planter at Feltham Station to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The result is full of red, white and blue plants, including some fabulous hydrangeas.
