The Wild Flower Society publishes a magazine four times a year. Articles include reports of our field meetings, summaries of the various wild flower hunts that people participate in, information on specific species, sites of botanical interest and feed-back on some of the grants we have awarded. As education about plants is one of our primary aims we also try and include hints and tips to aid identification including keys to specific groups of plants.

The magazine is sent to all our members. To give you a taste, a selection of articles from previous magazines is available below. If you like what you see, then why not join the society, participate in the activities and receive your copy of the magazine each quarter?

Grant Awards

Every year the Society awards grants to a range of different organisations and individuals to help them pursue their botanical goals. Many of these grants are to Wildlife Trusts so they can carry out training programmes or to people wishing to attend botanical courses. Some of these grants are to individuals so they can undertake an area of botanical research. One stipulation for the award of a grant is that the individual or organisation provide a brief report on the use to which the money was put. Here are two reports from recipients of grants awarded in 2022.
