Join Professor Jim Fitzmaurice of the University of Sheffield and Patricia Jordan, author and gardening writer for the Cyprus Mail newspaper, on a walkabout to discover the wild flowers and other plants of Cyprus.
Spring is a time when Cyprus is covered with wild flowers, including many species familiar from our gardens, but also rare orchids and irises. Our tour will start at St Lazarus Cathedral in the centre of Larnaca from where we will drive to the area of outstanding natural beauty between the villages of Agia Anna and Kalo Chorio and begin our search.
This is a stunningly beautiful area full of wild flowers and plants. We will expect to find some plants, including wild field marigolds, wild lilies, turban buttercups, storksbills and many more, and maybe some of the elusive orchids.
The trip will include walking, so wear comfortable shoes and we will be on higher ground than the coast so you might want to bring a coat or pullover in case the weather is against us.
