Some of the 37 plants we’re growing for the Bach Flower Remedy garden were already on-site at Offshoots because they’re useful in Permaculture.

Wild Rose, Walnut, Sweet Chestnut, Elm and Honeysuckle are flourishing with Holly, Oak, Hornbeam, White Chestnut and Chestnut Bud  just a short walk from the garden. We’re growing other plants from seed and have also been approaching nurseries asking for donations of plants for the project. We’ve been staggered by the generosity of the nurseries who are donating plants to the project.

This picture shows the first arrivals on-site. Beautiful Willow, Elm and Scots Pine which arrived from Buckingham Nurseries along with some Gorse plants.

Here at Offshoots Permaculture Project in Burnley, Lancashire we’re planning to grow all the Bach Flower Remedy plants on one site. The world famous Bach Flower Remedies were discovered by a medical doctor called Edward Bach in the 1930’s. The most popular Bach Flower Remedies are the combination he called Rescue Remedy® (also known as Revival Remedy™ and 5 Flower Remedy®).

The Bach Flower Remedies are made from trees, wildflowers and cultivated plants.  A grant from the Big Lottery Fund is enabling us to teach the local community about how these flower essences support health and wellbeing and show people how to make their own essences. If you’re in Lancashire, join us for an essence-making workshop or tree planting event – get in touch if you’d like to be kept informed of upcoming dates.
