Flora at Staunton Harold Sailing Club

Thank you to Staunton Harold Sailing Club member, Aileen, who carried out a survey of the wild plants growing along the narrow strip of land between the boat park “goose fence” and the reservoir this August. She found an amazing total of 58 different species!  Some were common wildflowers you might be familiar with like Stinging Nettle or Oxeye Daisy but some were more unusual such as Brooklime, Skullcap and Gipsywort. See below for a full list of the plants, together with some visuals. Enjoy!
