Find your local native plants

Postby Carolyn » Tue Jul 26, 2011 8:59 pm

I read an article about native plants whilst on holiday and it gave this link:

- you put in your postcode and it tells you what used to be native to the area. Apparently the Victorians introduced many new species of plants, and our native ones have been forgotten

I wonder who had the job of putting all this information together? A mammoth task I should think. :lol:
