About the Course

Gain skills and confidence in identifying wild and garden varieties.

Don’t know your daisies from your dahlias? Or maybe you have good general plant knowledge but want to be able to distinguish between similar varieties. We have a huge range of flowering plants in the UK, and they form a crucial part of our ecosystem. Learn about plant structures and terminology and get started with keys, field guides and microscope work. No more random guessing while flicking through the field guide!

The essential skills developed during this course make it ideal for professional development but also for anyone simply fascinated by plants and ecology.
