I joined the Wild Flower Society because:


I love the field meetings - interesting plants, interesting people, great fun!

- Tina Teearu

I joined because someone told me how much fun it was amassing a huge record book total!

Rodney Burton
WFS Chairman

I’ve always loved wild flowers but this was a solitary hobby until I joined WFS. The free field trips are fantastic!

- Clare Coleman

I wanted to learn the names of plants, where they grow and take part in the hunts. Now I like to show others where special plants are and photograph them for my website.

- Dr Peter Llewellyn

Without doubt the competitive side of filling in the diaries taught me to recognise my British plants.

Dr Tom Cope

It's just fun being part of a Society where everyone's keen on plants and will help you!

David Brear

Taking over a project my Mum started, I wanted to find more plants to photograph.



- Andrew Gagg

Druce of Oxford, for long our best known botanist, spoke of the WFS as a botanical nursery.

- David McClintock

I am a consultant ecologist working throughout the North of England. Membership of the WFS enables me to keep in touch with botanical contacts throughout the region and further afield.

Geoffrey Wilmore

I could not get my husband to take a proper day off and clear right out. I solved it by joining the Wild Flower Society, which has been the inspiration of my life, ever since.

- Lady Anne Brewis
