“A very well organised course with an excellent tutor, well prepared and informative. Added greatly to my knowledge.”
“Excellent, in spite of wet weather. Very knowledgeable but completely approachable tutor. Please book Stuart again.”
“Brilliant course, great tutor. Very pleased. Definitely come again if another course the same.”
“I joined the Wild Flower Society last year. Stuart’s course has given me a firm base to start my explorations and the all-important confidence to participate in events. His knowledge of his subject – and related areas of interest – is extensive and imparted with geniality and good humour. He delivered an exciting and comprehensive programme (clearly very well researched) despite the vagaries of the weather.”
