Orchid glade flora

Our fromus reserve botanical recorders have visited orchid glade with Laurie Forsyth.  He has agreed to be the botanical recorder for orchid glade.  They identified Betony and many other plants, including abundant common centaury and common fleabane, red bartsia, agrimony, smooth tare, knapweed, cat’s ear, horsetail and 2 forms of hypericum, one square stemmed and the other possibly pale.  The site is looking STUNNING, full of wild flowers and jumping with butterflies.
