The East Anglian coastline is dominated by shingle spits, saltmarshes and muddy estuaries – exhilarating locations but utterly unacceptable habitats for most of Britain’s flora. The extraordinary plants that are adapted to cope with the appallingly stressful conditions of these coastal sites are mostly restricted to them, and it is these remarkable plants that will be our focus during this course. At first sight, many are difficult to distinguish and identify but with guidance and perseverance participants will soon get to grips with this unique, fascinating and diverse flora. Bursaries are available for this course, generously organised by the Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service. Please contact FSC Flatford Mill for details.

Ros Bennett is a freelance botanist and former member of FSC staff with extensive experience of more difficult groups of plant.
