Dunwich - Snowdrops at Grey Friars Priory in February.

Fox Fritillary Meadow (near Winston) - Open Day. Fritillaries (around 300,000 of them) can be seen on the annual Open Day which is scheduled between late April and May when the flowers are at their best. Please call (01473 890089) for a date nearer that time - there is no access to the meadow other than on the Open Day. The meadow is part of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust Reserve, 2.5 hectares of wet meadow next to a tributary of the River Debden. Nearly all of the 18 fritillary meadows in Suffolk have disappeared since WWII through ploughing and land drainage. In early July after the flowers have dropped their seeds, a crop of hay is taken and the meadow is given over to sheep grazing which helps control the grasses that would smother the fritillaries.
