Our plans are to establish systems for recording throughout the county and to encourage local botanists to start networking again through a series of Field Meetings.

Future plans include the preparation of an up-to-date Rare Plant Register.

2009 saw the publication of Warwickshire’s Wildflowers by Steven J. Falk from Warwickshire Museum. This is the first comprehensive account of the county’s native and naturalised plants for 30 years.

The first half of the book covers the history of plant recording in the county and gives detailed information on habitats, the second half is a checklist that gives the status of nearly 1800 plants that have been seen within the vice-county.

The book is available from booksellers and from Warwick Museum, Market Place, Warwick, CV34 4SA.

Field Meetings

All botanical meetings will start at 10 a.m. and finish at about 3.30 p.m. or when everybody has had enough. Please bring sandwiches and drinks. Walking will be limited to a couple of miles. 

You do not need to be member of the BSBI or anything else to come along. You can be a beginner or an expert, and just interested in identifying and finding plants. Please bring field guides and a lens if you have one.

If you want any more information ring us on 01827 712455 or e mail johnwalton46@tiscali.co.uk.
