About the Norfolk Flora Group

Marsh Gentian by Bob Ellis

The Norfolk Flora Group is an informal group of botanists with mixed experience, who actively record vascular plants throughout Norfolk. The group was set up in 1988 to encourage local botanists to help gather data for an atlas flora of the county and after a 10 year survey period A Flora of Norfolk was published.

Instead of retiring gracefully, the group carried on recording plants and is more active than ever - we have now finished our contributions to the Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland's Atlas 2020 project but we will of course continue to contribute to the BSBI database and we are continuing to record towards an update to A Flora of Norfolk.

We also hold identification workshops and field meetings specifically aimed at beginners and improvers, as well as visiting the occasional pub at the end of the day.

There is no better way of improving your botanical identification skills than going into the field with other keen botanists.
