Happy New Year!

It is only a few weeks before we have our winter meeting at Preston Montford on Saturday 21st January at 2PM. We have John Warren as a guest speaker coming to discuss his new book "Frustrating Flowers and Puzzling Plants". John will be taking a look at some of these plant groups and discussing different approaches to help identify them. 

In the intervening time this is the first of a series of posts looking articles that were originally published in the Society Newsletter and might be useful either as a reminder or to help new recorders. This article was written by Dr Sarah Whild, it is a series of small sketches and a brief description of ferns that you might find on walls in Shropshire.

This was originally published in autumn 1998. The taxonomy has changed since it was originally published and both Rustyback Fern Ceterach officinarum and Hart's-tongue Fern are now located in Asplenium, becoming Asplenium ceterach and A. scolopendrium.

All the newsletters are available and can be found here.

We shall look forward to seeing you on the 21st.
