Good site for dutchies, interested in plants.
It's possible to do a search / click a plant and see it's description, uses, folklore, habitat, etc.
It even has a section with an old scanned herb book (1554)!!
EDIT 2 (20 Feb.): http://www.reticule.co.uk/flora/
Possibility to ID a plant, also have a look in the link section en recommended booksection (links to Amazon, regarding good plant books - including 2 Flora's of the British Isles).
I just thought I would let you know about this website I found, It is a tree search database which enables people to identify a tree by its common name / scientific name, its fruit type or by its leaf type.
For beginners like me with virtually no experience to fall back on I think this could be a handy site.
Can anyone suggest a pocket size book on trees, identifying them and best types to use for carving.
Also is there any pocket size books on using natural remidies for fak/medical. Like plants/bark/weeds and other flora and fauna?
"True bugs (Hemiptera) are one of the major groups of insects found in the UK, comprising nearly 2000 species.
The purpose of this website is to illustrate as many of these as possible, since they are poorly covered by popular field guides. The availability of digital cameras has now made recording images of insects easier than ever before - come and discover the world of bugs and be hooked!"
