Flowering Plants: Arable Land

Dense-flowered fumitoryCommon around the edges of arable fields on many farms are Wild Pansy, Parsley-piert, Dwarf Spurge, Field Madder, Small Toadflax and both Fluellens.  More restricted arable annuals grow on Hampden Bottom Farm: Dense-flowered Fumitory (also on two allotments), Corn Mint, Shepherd’s Needle, Venus’s Looking-glass, and Narrow-fruited Cornsalad (the last two abundant in certain fields).  Others grow on the more acid clays of Peterley Manor Farm: Corn Spurrey (also on one allotment), Slender Parsely-piert, Small Nettle, Creeping Yellow-cress, Changing Forgetmenot, and Shaggy Soldier.  In 2008 the first record of Many-seeded Goosefoot was obtained from near Speen, and Field Woundwort has only been found on wasteland at Brickfields.
