The time of year is the main factor determining when you will see various wildflowers and plants at their most colourful

However, many people do not realise the extra potential native plants can have by increasing the wildlife around their area. Native plants in England are those that have arrived independently of man, and have been here for several millennia before people, bricks, buildings, farming, commerce and roads transformed the landscape. Native plants are often confused with naturalised plants, such as the horse chestnut, the evening primrose and the cornflower.

It is often difficult for people for people to find out which plants are local to their area. Now the Postcode Plants Database locates the flowers, trees, butterflies, and birds for each home address in Berkshire, England and the rest of the UK.
