So it’s not a grass! But why isn’t it a grass? Are there many more like this and how can I tell the difference between the different sedges? Once the basics have been unpacked, this wonderful group of plants, some of which are key indicators of particular habitats, will prove to be incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. This course will involve looking at a range of specimens and guide you through the process of identification from the very beginning right through to identification to species level, providing you with the confidence to relish tackling unknown species.
