The Norfolk Flora Group was set up in order to carry out a specific project, A Flora of Norfolk, and ever since we have been involved both in BSBI projects and our own. For example, a survey of some 1,150 arable field margins was carried out between 2008 and 2012. The results of that survey were reported in the Transactions of the Norfolk and Norwich Naturalists' Society. Current projects include the BSBI Atlas 2020 and the development of a Rare Plant Register for the county. After the completion of the Atlas, we hope to set about updating 'A Flora of Norfolk'.
