This course is designed to give the beginner a sound foundation in these two groups. We shall not be hunting for rarities or clocking up a long list of species, but rather we shall spend time tackling the identification of the commoner members of each family. The intricate beauty of these attractive plants is often sadly overlooked. Instead they are frequently lumped together as being "green and dull and difficult to identify". For two groups of plants that contribute such a major part to some of our wilder landscapes, it seems a pity to neglect them. Bursaries are available for this course, generously organised by the Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service. Please contact FSC Flatford Mill for details.

Bring a friend!

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