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 […]
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 […]
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.

This bed was incredibly overgrown when our gardening team were called in by TfL to its rescue. They carefully cut back dominating plants to give everything room to thrive and added in more pollinator-friendly flowers for seasonal forage.
The Yards & The Bees was a series of bold art installations celebrating urban bees at The Yards Covent Garden, in London. After the exhibition came to a close, three of the four artworks were generously donated to the Bee Friendly Trust and now find themselves at three of our bee-friendly projects. ‘Urban Ecosystem’ by […]
Following on from the success of our lockdown wildlife garden project, we were pleased to be supported by the Mayor of London and the Grow Back Greener Fund for a major project of further nature planting at Coram’s Fields. Coram’s Fields is a children’s charity that serves as a safe place for all children to […]
Coram’s Fields is a children’s charity that serves as a safe place for all children to play, as well as offering an after school and holiday programme and youth centre for 13-29-year-olds, in the heart of London. On the opposite side of the site to our original wildlife garden and apiary, an area of neglected […]
