The Future Botanists

Beaulieu Convent School are studying daffodil species in Jersey and need our help. Please use this survey form they've created to submit your records and there is a handy species guide on there for ID help.  Their project title is: The mapping of daffodils within Jersey for the potential sequencing of their plastomes. Very exciting project that will need lots of records – let’s get out walking and find some!

Jersey Wildflowers: Yarrow

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a perennial plant found commonly throughout the island, notable for its feathery leaves and clustered, flat heads of flowers present in the summertime.  The plant is well-suited to drier and grassier habitats and therefore flourishes in wayside ground and hedgerow banks.  Being highly ornamental and rather aromatic, cultivars of the species are also often planted in gardens.
