BSBI New Year Plant Hunt in the media

Plant Hunt co-founder Tim and a Hieracium (he's an expert!)

Tim, Ryan and I have been busy this afternoon, telling our friends in the media all about the BSBI New Year Plant Hunt. We'll post links to print coverage as it is published, but for now, you can read how Roger Harrabin at the BBC covered the Hunt on the BBC News website here.

And if you are up at 7.20am tomorrow (Saturday) morning and listening to the Today programme on Radio 4 - as millions of us do - you should hear Dr Tim Rich talking about the Hunt. That's when he's going in to do a live interview about the New Year Plant Hunt. Or you can catch it later here on iPlayer.

Ryan and I are already talking about how we can make next year's Plant Hunt even more amazing - is such a thing even possible? If it is, we'll do it! 

And if you have any good ideas, don't forget you can still email us at nyplanthunt@bsbi.org - we'd love to hear from you! 

Many thanks to Tim and Sarah for dreaming up the New Year Plant Hunt in the first place - I hope they are pleased at how it has flourished. 

And many thanks to hundreds of you who took part and thousands more of you who have followed the story so far on these pages. 

Stay tuned for links to coverage in the press!
