Wildflowers of South Armagh Booklet

Wildflowers of South Armagh Booklet


The purpose of this booklet is to encourage the enjoyment and recording of wildflowers and plants in South Armagh. In it you should find ways to identify both common plants, which are likely to be seen on a regular basis and rarer species which will require an effort to find. You will also find tips on how to collect and store seed and grow your own wildflowers. Growing your own is a great way to combat biodiversity loss and will also attract bees, butterflies and a plethora of other extremely important creatures to your garden, allotment, local amenity area or place of work.

We hope this booklet encourages you to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the flora of South Armagh. This booklet is funded by the Department of Environment’s Challenge Fund and is a partnership between the Ring of Gullion Partnership, the Heritage Lottery Fund, County Armagh Wildlife Society and the Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland (BSBI).

A special thanks to authors and photographers Oisín Duffy & Mairéad Crawford for pulling together the information and photography for this booklet.

There are paper copies of the booklet available in the Ring of Gullion Office in Crossmaglen Community Center.
