Plant identification. A collection of wild plant articles with Botanical descriptions.
Fast track your plant identification skills with the easy-to-learn method of ‘plant family patterns’.
Plant identification is at the heart of foraging wild foods. There have been around 3000 species of plants documented either growing wild or naturalised in the UK.
Of these around 1500 are native species, and they are found in approximately 130 plant families. This is why I teach about plant families and their patterns on my all year round foraging courses, as well as on my bite-size foraging videos.
