Plants

This page is dedicated to the vascular plants found within NG3963 (ie not including bryophytes). The alphabetical list on the PSL page is simply frustrating. Garden plants, crops and council planted trees/flowerbeds/borders are not admissible - all plants have to be 'wild' whether native or naturalised. Garden throw-outs that have become established away from their source and seedlings of exotic trees are, however, admissible (it's my list, they're my rules...)

Nomenclature and taxonomy follows Stace (3rd edition, 2010)

As can be seen, I have a lot of work to do with the ferns, rushes, sedges and grasses to be found in NG3963. They are not my favourite set of plants! It would also be pleasing to figure out which species of brambles and dandelions are present - 'agg.' is such a horribly unsatisfactory term.
