Event description
Field studies amongst the largest collection of conifers in the UK. Linked to previous day.

About this Event

Weather permitting we shall slowly complete a circuit of the Pinetum. Along this route we will encounter all the genera that we studied on Saturday 23rd November (and more). We shall have the opportunity to consider a variety of species within most of the genera (though this will be kept to a maximum of three or so in most of the bigger genera, to avoid overload!) We shall stop briefly en route for a picnic. If the weather is particularly unpleasant we may complete the circuit and the course slightly faster and return to the visitors’ centre for a late lunch. Here there are toilets and a café. There is one toilet en route around the Pinetum.

By the end of the session you will be able to:

  • Identify several of the commonly found conifers and some usual uncommon ones

Led by Ros Bennett, Botanist

Suitable for beginners and improvers. If you are not attending the linked study day on 23rd November it would be an advantage to be already acquainted with the main generic characteristics, though these will be revised repeatedly during the day.

Meet at Bedgebury Pinetum Visitors Centre.
