Plants are essential to everyone's lives. Welcome to Plantlife.

First Steps: get to know your wild flowers

Would you like to find out more about wildflowers, but are not sure how to start looking?

Plantlife Scotland has created a series of free handy cards, highlighting 14 familiar habitats and some of the typical plants that can be found in them. Discover and explore different places and see what’s growing there. It’s great as a family activity or with a small group of friends, or just out for a wander by yourself.

We will be running a series of events this spring and summer for people to come along and try out the cards for themselves and tick off what they find (keep an eye on our Activities page for dates and locations).
