National Insect Week returns in 2020

Storrington Wildlife Garden Open Day

Target species: All three meadow Skippers, Marbled White, Ringlet and many others.

There is also a wildflower meadow to enjoy and plenty of herbaceous borders stocked with British Native plants.

Children are welcome, as are dogs if well-controlled.
