Botanists may know more about plants in Britain than anywhere else in the world, but things are always changing. New invasive species sometimes escape from our gardens into the wild, and there are always new and exciting discoveries to be made.
Post your photos here and ask questions about British plants, from seaweeds to sundews and bluebells to bracken. Museum experts will help identify them for you.
The tree population in the UK is changing. Species that aren’t native to the UK are being introduced. Climate change and our expanding towns and cities are affecting the types of trees that are growing and their locations.
Got a question about trees? Want some help identifying a particular tree? The experts and enthusiasts in this forum could help.
