WilderNess : an experience of nature


Over 600 species of flora and faunaPagedec

Enjoy this large area of wild habitat overlooking the Dee Estuary, providing a safe home for birds, mammals, bees, butterflies and wildflowers.

The original cretaion of the wildflower meadow in 2008 has now evolved into a much larger conservation project.  With generous financial support from the  'Friends of Ness Gardens'  we are developing a much broader and diverse range of natural habitats across the wilder parts of Ness Gardens.

These habitats  include  :

Cornfield annuals, perennial meadow, wet fen meadow, woodland ground flora, limestone, grassland, wild orchid habitat and rough grassland for small mammals, birds and for our resident colony of harvest mice.

WilderNess also contains important woody plant collections of Rowans and Whitebeams (Sorbus), Birches (

Betula), Alders (Alnus), Crab Apples (Malus) and conifers, many of which are rare in the wild and in  cultivation.

WilderNess is  active throughout the year and  there is a dedicated website which is updated via the  diary and blog on a weekly basis. So please visit and find out more.
