Thanks for the heads up Peter - I wonder if it means Derbyshire as a county or includes Peak district too?
Cheers

Hi Ken

Its Derbyshire as a County (but covers most of the Peak District). Its a quality publication 458pp with a good introductory chapters, red data lists etc and distribution maps of all native plants plus plant introductions and a liberal scattering of some (small) but excellent photographs (but then I would say that, as about 80% are mine!)

Thanks Peter - I'll try and get a view of it at some stage.....
Well done on the pics too, nice to be recognised.
It'll be interesting to see what it has to say about our Labrador Tea up here in the northern end of the Peaks - some daughter plants just starting to bloom.
Cheers
Ken
