House of Wayward Plants at Morden Hall Park

House of Wayward Plants

In 2019, we held a plant adoption day at Morden Hall Park, where members of the public were able to adopt a plant that was previously seen at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

We teamed up with Wayward and The Royal Horticultural Society to give a lasting legacy to the plants on display at RHS Hampton Court Place Flower Show. This innovative plant recycling scheme, supported by a dedicated team of volunteers, has allowed several thousands of plants and materials from one of the world’s most prestigious flower shows to be rehomed.

By filling out a Wayward Plant adoption form, stating how they will care for the plant and where it will live, members of the public had the opportunity to rehome one of the plants for free.

The reuse initiative is part of the House of Wayward Plants, a long-term project run by Wayward that facilitates large-scale community plant exchanges and adoption events for unwanted plants. The National Trust is working closely with Wayward to co-develop a long term vision for the House of Wayward Plants.

House of Wayward Plants is in assocation with the first ever London National Park City Week.
