A site for botanists in Hampshire

Welcome to this site, which provides a forum for the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) in Hampshire, and acts as the web site for the Hampshire Rare Plant Register project. Much of the activity detailed here is also organised by, or in collaboration with, the Hampshire Flora Group which is run and financially supported by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.

New material becomes available here quite often, so check back in the near future. To see what's new on the site and to hear about what's going on, go to the News page.

The 'Login' facility has been removed from the site - all current content is 'open access', apart from the new online recording facilities (see below), which require their own login. If the 'Login' item still displays in the menu on the left, refresh this page in your browser.

NEW - Map-based online plant recording! Use the menu bar or go straight to the Online recording page to sign up and get going.

Narcissus pseudonarcissus

Wild Daffodils Narcissus pseudonarcissus in a hedgebank near Sherfield English. Although not given the accolade by Wordsworth, Hampshire has several good areas for seeing a profusion of Wild Daffodils. They include the valley of the Linford Brook and neighbouring areas on the western edge of the New Forest; the area between Sherfield English and Lockerley, where they are in almost every ancient hedgerow and copse; woods to the west of Chandlers Ford, running towards North Baddesley and Ampfield; around Botley and Curbridge; parts of the Forest of Bere in the Meon valley; and in the north of the county, Pamber Forest and the country around Wolverton.
