Plant Recording

Plant recording - please scroll down for the results from several walks.

Several pleasant weekday and weekend walks with ACCESS members and Volunteer Friends of Oakwood Field members have seen numerous species recorded and sent to the Nottinghamshire Records Office.  In particular was a clump of Town Hall Clock

This plant is common but easily missed and I find it best to look for the three-lobed, light green leaves in February or March. It flowers in early spring preferring wet or dampish places often in the shade.  Its other common name is rather dull: Moschatel. See Here for further information
