Early-purple Orchids blooming two weeks earlier than usual in Sussex
Sussex is a great county for native orchids, which will reach a peak of splendour in June.
To see an orchid spectacle in June, The National Trust is organising an illustrated talk (covering twenty six native orchid species) at the National Trust learning centre at Saddlescombe Farm. The talk will be followed by a walk on Newtimber Hill lead by National Trust Ranger, Graham Wellfare.
The date is Tuesday 20 June 2017 from 10.30 to 13.30hr. and costs £10.00.
Please wear suitable clothing and footwear. Bring a picnic lunch if needed or there is a café onsite. The National Trust will provide tea & coffee.
Booking is essential and places are limited. Call Graham on 01273 857981 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
