You can see many different flowers and plants on Hambrook Marshes, reflecting the variety of ecosystems on the site. As a wetland, Hambrook Marshes is prone to flooding, which is a big influence on the types of flowers and plants that will grow here. We also aim to offer a wide range of wild flowers for pollinating insects, with vegetation and trees providing shelter and food to wildlife throughout the year.

There is also a willow patch with many different types of willow, each with its own properties and uses. Willows with particularly pliable shoots, or withies, are known as osiers. The Hambrook willows are managed by a contractor who cuts the withies regularly and uses them mainly to make hurdles and fencing. To see willow plants close up, visit the willow maze which was made with help from local primary school children.
