Open Day to see the National Collection of Achilleas at Worth Park

Date: Friday 5 July 2024

Visit the National Collection of Achilleas on Friday 5th July 2024 from 10am until 2pm at Worth Park, Worth Park Avenue, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 3DJ. Attendees will meet Steve Peters, Worth Park’s Head Gardener and enjoy guided tours of the Achillea Collection and garden. The Collection contains over 160 plants of 45 different varieties of various cultivars, including Achillea filipendulina and Achillea millefolium. Achilleas are ideal for pollinators, drought tolerant and easy to propagate. Worth Park has eight acres of garden, parkland, meadows, established (and newly planted) trees and a lake. There are good paths, and it is mostly level ground, so very accessible. The gardens at Worth Park were regularly re-modelled, starting with James Pulham in 1793 and continuing with 3 succeeding generations of James Pulham’s, up to 1898. Now work continues to improve the garden in a sustainable way. Achillea plants will be for sale at this opening. In addition to the tours, the café at Kelly’s will be open. This is a free event.
