Barry Stewart on Wildflowers of Gower
Barry Stewart is the plant and bryophyte recorder for Glamorgan and also runs Celtic Wildflowers which provides wildflower planting and habitat restoration services to the National Botanic Garden and many conservation organisations. In addition to plant life, Barry has an encyclopaedic knowledge of British wildlife generally and is a local expert on many different types including birds, bees and moths so there is no one better qualified to talk about the unique flora of the Gower Peninsula and the part it plays in the incredibly valuable ecosystems of Britain’s first officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
