Our towns and cities are full of a fascinating array of wild plants, thriving in parks, streets, gardens, walls and pavements. This talk will introduce you to the plants you probably pass every day, and their intriguing properties and adaptations to urban life. During the talk, Dr Bethan Stagg will also share tips for learning plant identification, including memory aids, mobile apps, nature journals and making your own plant collections.
