It is a distance learning course with a difference – course units are delivered online but you practise real plant identification throughout the summer with the support of a tutor

  • The course consists of 15 units delivered at fortnightly intervals
  • It starts in February and finishes in August, tracking the flowering season
  • Each unit concludes with a short question sheet, requiring you to find and examine wild plants
  • You have your own tutor, who will correct your answers and give advice
  • There are no grades or numerical marks
  • The course can be completed in one year but you may continue into a second year if you wish
  • YOU WILL NEED TO GO OUT TO FIND WILD PLANTS, BUT ONLY COMMON ONES

NEW TUTORS ARE WELCOME
