Staff member planting bulbs in the park

Planting Day: Hyde Park

Key information

11 November, 11.30am - 3.30pm


Hyde Park


Help us help nature thrive...

Planting bulbs is a fantastic and easy way to help nature thrive no matter how much space you have – bulbs grow well in a plant pot on a windowsill, in a garden, and in large swathes in parks!

Not only do bulbs provide colourful displays, but they can provide nectar and pollen for our pollinating bees, flies, and butterflies too. This is especially important in early spring when other flowers are yet to bloom. 

Join us and get involved with hands-on planting and leave your mark in Hyde Park by planting winter aconite bulbs.

Drop-in any time between 11.30am – 3.30pm at The Dell.

No, all plants and tools are provided. You do not need to bring anything with you.

We will be planting in the ground, and this can involve bending down. We will have some kneeling pads and spades to assist with planting. Do let a member of staff know if you need any assistance with any of the tools.

We will be planting woodland bulbs as part of a larger habitat. We will have a lot of bulbs to plant, but we will be limited to availability. We hope to give each group the opportunity to plant at least 5/10 bulbs.

Find us on the Boardwalk next to the Ready Money Drinking Fountain.

The nearest stations are Regents Park or Mornington Crescent.

By bus
There are plenty of bus options the closest is the 88 or 274 Parkway (Stop CU). 

We will also be offering the opportunity to make clay creatures to take home. If it gets busy, there may be some queueing before planting the saplings. We will have some queue activities to help keep people of all ages busy.
