A reminder that this year's Botany for Beginners course starts on Saturday 2nd May at University of Leicester Botanic Garden and there are still a few spaces left on some of the modules. Find out more by clicking here.
The course is great fun and an ideal way for beginners to get started in plant ID. Once you have completed it, you will feel much more confident identifying wild plants in the field. You will also be able to identify all the criterion species to designate Local Wildlife Sites. And if you are thinking of joining the intermediate-level Plant Identification course, then you will need to have completed the beginners course (or equivalent) beforehand.
