Making time for plants

It would be nice if all the plants we wanted to see were on our back door-steps but the various regions of Britain are rich in different habitats. If we know we will be visiting an area it would be nice to know where to go to find interesting plants; searching for wild flowers is fun but we don't all have as much time as we would wish. 


With the Plantfinder you can click on each dot to see what sort of plants to expect there. 
I have chosen these sites to give a representative selection of British habitats; most of them are nature reserves of one sort or another. Many of these reserves include rare and otherwise interesting flowers but others are just particular habitat examples. 

I have not visited them all myself (only about 15%!) so I should welcome comments. Bear in mind that some of these sites are tiny and others very large. Keep to public footpaths unless you have permission to stray.
