Many of our volunteers growing the Nottingham Catchfly as part of our project will find that their seedlings are outgrowing their peat-free pellet.

In this video Pippa Vidal Davies, Nottingham Castle’s Volunteer Manager, shows how to repot the seedlings, including some excellent ideas for a some recycled pots (including a rather pig-turesque one!)

We’re really enjoying your updates so please continue to share your pictures and videos using the hashtags #CampionsLeague and #nottinghamcatchfly.

We’re so excited we’re one step closer to reintroducing the Catchfly to the castle grounds!




What's it all about

From the caves to the palace to Brewhouse Yard, the Nottingham Castle project will transform the entire site, re-establishing it as a focal point for civic pride and creating a world-class cultural destination at the heart of a regenerated Castle Quarter.

Discover the story of Medieval Nottingham and the city’s famous outlaw or the turbulent moments of riot and rebellion in its past. Explore the visual arts and heritage crafts of our creative city in newly refurbished galleries, including our new terrace gallery for internationally renowned touring work. Investigate the trails around the Castle’s grounds or go on an underground adventure in the caves.

Join us on your Nottingham Castle adventure from February 2021.
