British Wild Flowers - Site News

If you notice any errors or have any suggestions for the site, Lynsey and Tom would appreciate an email at

This site was created in 2003 by John Somerville and, as a result of his dedication and huge time commitment along with that of numerous contributing photographers, it now lists 2014 different plant species (not including grasses, sedges, rushes or ferns).  It is hoped that this total can exceed 2100 in the next few years and that the British Wild Flowers website will display good quality pictures of almost all the flowers found in Britain and Ireland.  More pictures depicting different aspects of each plant will be added as and when possible.

We need your help to complete this project: if you have pictures covering new plants - or different aspects of existing plants - and would like your pictures displayed on the site, please send us an email. It would help if you keep the size of each picture below 700k and include its name and a rough description of where and when it was taken. (After re-sizing the final image will be between 40k to 300k).

Photographs are displayed with the photographer's name, location and the date it was taken. All photographs displayed on British Wild Flowers remain the property of the original photographers. Any requests to use photographs will be passed on to the original photographers for them to action.

Over the past year or so, the site has been undergoing some administrative changes and you may have noticed that some photos are lost in the 'ether' and that your emails haven't been addressed nor photos uploaded. 

But fear not! The site isn't going anywhere and is now being run by Lynsey Crellin and Tom Squires under the helpful guidance of John, and work is being done to get the site fully functional once again! Bearing this in mind, if any of you happen to be technical wizards, then feel free to get in touch via email and offer any support you can. Thanks for your patience
