This beginner ferns course is a great place to start for those taking their first steps into the world of ferns.

Ferns are a common sight on a woodland walk, but have you wondered what species you are seeing? Ferns are vibrant non-flowering plants which reproduce via spores. With a diverse variety of species in the UK, there is much to explore.


Tutor: Henry Miller

I am a botanist working at Kew Gardens on projects relating to the conservation of tropical plants in Uganda as well as producing extinction risk assessments for Ethiopian species. Outside of work I am involved in the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland and the London Natural History Society, I volunteer with these organisations to record and identify a wide range of plants.
