Talk by Toby Beasley

Toby is the Head Gardener at Osborne House. 97% of wildflower meadows have been lost since the Second World War but at Osborne they have been actively improving their wildflower areas for the last 25 years. This talk is an insight into the varied wildflower areas of the Osborne estate from the wildflower meadows in front of the terraces, to the woodland rides and touching on the beach foreshore. Toby will cover the management of these areas with the intention of improving wildflower diversity and also look at some of the special wildflowers we have at Osborne.
