Teams of university students compete in this quiz about all things botanical. It is about UK wild plants and ecology, terminology, plant identification and diversity, food plants, plants in UK and world culture – indeed all the interests of the enthusiastic botanist!

This is a great early Spring event to inspire you to look again at the countryside around you.

Teams will come from universities including Liverpool, Edge Hill, Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan, Lancaster, York and Reading Universities.
