About Me

My photo

I have been interested in nature for most of my life but since I retired I spend as much time as I can exploring the nature reserves and wildlife hotspots of my adopted home, Dorset in southern England. Whilst out I record what I see and take snaps where I can (I am no photographer!) and that forms the basis of my Nature of Dorset website. When I find something new I like to research it and write about it in my nature notes, it is how I learn and hopefully you might find my notes helpful as well!

This website is for the people of Dorset interested in wildlife and for people from elsewhere interested in the wildlife of Dorset!

Allseed (Radiola linoides)

It is not, perhaps, hard to see why this flower is called Allseed, it is nearly all seed! The flowers are very small and soon become seeds.

This is a very inconspicuous and dull plant, not really worth a look to be honest. It grows on damp bare acid sandy soils on heaths and also on paths in open woods.Not uncommon but very 'overlooked' but it can be found frequently on the Dorset heaths.

There is not much else you can say about this plant really.
