Happy New Year Shropshire botanists and wildflower enthusiasts!
We are not doing an organised group New Year Plant Hunt but you can still take part, following your local COVID guidelines, of course. Shropshire is never top of the leader board for plants in bloom at this time of the year, even in towns as we still get a recognisable winter. But that doesn't matter, all records are of interest to the BSBI in reviewing the flowering trends in our flora.

The New Year Plant Hunt is easy to do and a good excuse for a nice long walk.
