The winning photograph, taken by Jane Ellis,  portrayed Club Members examining moss in the field during last year's Sphagnum Workshop.

The workshop will now be held either later in 2017 or early in 2018. Those who have indicated an interest in the workshop will be informed individually, and the new date for the workshop will be advertised as soon as possible.

News and Announcements / Autumn 2016 weather
« Last post by Peter Wallace on December 12, 2016, 08:21:25 pm »
Autumn 2016 was warmer and dryer than usual with about average sunshine.
Although November was colder than normal, this was more than compensated for by the warm conditions in September and October. Rainfall in November was above normal, but the dry conditions during September and October meant that overall the autumnal rainfall total was well short of the 30 year average of 188mm.
Soil temperatures were also well above normal - at 30cm depth, the mean of 11.9C was 0.9 higher than average.
