Britain has some wonderfully diverse and interesting plant life and can be completely different each place you go depending on the habitat and the pH of your soil. In areas such as Wiltshire where the soil is chalk (alkaline) you find species such as Orchids in abundance this can also be said for areas such as the limestone dales of Yorkshire. This is opposed to places such as Exmoor and Dartmoor where acid thriving species such as Heather are more common.


Anytime of year is wonderful for flowers, whole hillsides go through a colour transition throughout the year when it may be more yellow (Buttercups and Cowslips) and then more purple (Orchids, Wild Thyme, and Scabious) and with these flowers come wonderful invertebrates such as beetles, butterflies and day moths.
