Details

This course is for anyone with a recent or renewed interest in wild flowers, who would like to learn how to identify them correctly. By close examination and gaining an understanding of the floral structure of the major flower families that make up over three quarters of our British flora, you will make huge strides forward in your confidence and competence as a budding field botanist. For those who begin to take more than a passing interest in our wild flowers, the seemingly infinite variety of colours and designs soon becomes an overwhelming obstacle. That original romantic attraction, for those who face the challenge, often turns into an irresistible, absorbing, life-long enthusiasm. However, the many problems of recognising and naming plants, from the insignificant pearlworts to the flamboyant orchids, may still remain insurmountable for some time. This course is suitable for beginners; no previous knowledge will be assumed. Visits to local nature reserves and other flower-rich sites each day will be complemented by identification sessions in the evenings.
