Warrington Plant Group square bash at Gemini Retail Park

Yep, doesn’t sound very promising, does it, a day spent recording all the vascular plants on a retail park – and it was only the hardcore (me and B) who turned up to this Warrington Plant Group meeting.  Everyone else, YOU MISSED OUT !

It was awesome, we recorded over 150 species of plant including three types of orchid and over 120 plants of broad-leaved helleborine 😀

Who knew a half urban, half arable grid square could produce such delights?  I certainly wasn’t expecting that and I’ve lived here for the best part of 15 years…..
