Golf Guide to Wild Flowers - getting 'on course' with biodiversity

Not so many years ago, golf courses were being attacked by ecologists as un-natural, profit obsessed, elitist wastes of green space that were endangering our natural habitats and threatening the environment with the use of unnecessary chemicals. Nowadays biodiversity is a major selling point of golf courses.

Golf Guide to Wild Flowers

British Wild Flower Plants have produced a guide to using wild flowers on golf courses. It includes plant lists for every situation, such wild flower meadows, roughs, woodland and water features.

It can be downloaded from www.wildflowers.co.uk/pdf/golfguide.pdf
