WilderNess : an experience of nature
Over 600 species of flora and fauna
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
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
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.
