By August many of our finest native plants have finished flowering, with the notable exception of glorious shows of thistles, ragworts, dandelions and mayweeds - a great time therefore to concentrate on the Asteraceae or the Compositae as we used to call them. The course will be essentially a practical one with ample time provided, under guidance, for the study of floral design under the low power microscope; a useful tool which undoubtedly aids future field identification.
