Are you a botanist who still shies away from the Dandelion look-alikes? Have you tried and failed to sort out the willows or the docks for instance? Do you find yourself saying "I don't do sedges . . . or ferns . . . or goosefoots?" This course does not expect to turn you into an expert in any of these plants groups, but to demystify where possible and to get you started. By the end of the course you should be inspired with confidenced and enthusiasm to tackle 'new' and attractive plants and so discover yet more of our amazingly beautiful, intriguing and surprisingly diverse flora.

Ros Bennett is a freelance botanist and former member of FSC staff with extensive experience of more difficult groups of plants.
