Botany Group New Year Plant Hunt @ Demesne car park | Wolsingham | England | United Kingdom

Once again the botany group will join in this nationwide adventure to search for flowering wild plants in the depths of winter. This is an initiative of the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) that our group has been involved in with now for a number of years. There are some rules to follow, but essentially the idea is simple – walk around a patch for up to 3 hours, find and identify any wild plants in flower. And there will be some – but which and how many?


This year we will visit Wolsingham and Tunstall Reservoir, walking around to find and record our plants (as well as keep warm!) And you don’t have to be an expert, everyone is welcome. Just come along to enjoy a gentle walk in lovely countryside and help us to find some 20 or 30 or even more plants in flower.

We will finish in a cosy local cafe to share our experiences.
