If you are in Oswestry, you can’t miss Cae Glas Park right in the centre of town. A multi gold award winner in Heart of England in Bloom and recently awarded much loved status by Fields in Trust, the park glows through the summer with wonderful bedding displays.

The National Garden Scheme flourishes here in Shropshire. Why not visit local gardens and allotments?
More than that though, if you prefer your planting on the wild side, take a trip to some of the tucked away spots such as Ifton Meadows or Jones Rough and you may be in time to see the spring time masses of wild garlic and bluebells or even spot a wild orchid.
Take a walk up Old Oswestry Hill Fort on a sunny day to see the wildlife and views. There are woodland walks and interesting plant centres all around Oswestry and make sure you stock up on gardening supplies from our independent market traders and shops.
