On our Twitter feed we’ve been taking pictures of wild plants as they come into flower during the seasons. This will be a handy resource for you or your pupils to look back on, to know ‘what flowers when’. Many spring flowers come out before the woodland trees have their leaves on and shade them out. Right now, in July and into August, the flowering summer plants are the ones that grow tall, to get themselves up above those that have been out earlier.
If you look back over the course of the year, you’ll be able with your pupils to anticipate what will be coming into flower in the months of the next year. It’ll really boost their knowledge of wild British species !
