How the churchyard was before planting


2012 Planting

During the summer a group of volunteers transformed St. Michael’s Churchyard in Dundry to a haven for bees and other pollinators. The idea was to encourage them to the area with a mixture of wild flowers and annuals.


Plans are in place to plant a variety of bulbs including native bluebells, snowdrops and fritillaries as well as perennial plants as a more permanent attraction.


We would like to thank those people who have generously donated money to buy the bulbs and also to those you have given low growing perennial plants.

2013 Planting

Since our experiment in 2012 when we sowed wildflower seeds and planted bulbs in the churchyard; we have this year been planting perennial evergreen rockery plants and some herbaceous plants in the hope that they will be there each year. Where we didn’t have enough plants earlier in the year, we sowed some wildflower seed. Below are photos that were taken during the year.


Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the churchyard.
