How to use the essential tools of plant keys and hand lenses to help identify plants – an online workshop

Plant keys – taking away the fear and mystery

Picture guides are really useful, when identifying wild plants, however, to get the most out of botanising, learning how to use keys is an essential tool.

This course will take the fear out of ‘keying out’. You will be introduced to a range of different keys and their strengths and weaknesses will be explored. Guidance will also be given on how to use hand lenses.
