UK Foraging Calendar

This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it’s what I have collected so far. Bear in mind that weather may affect the time when plants come out or fruit so this is just a starting point for reference. Each image links to an identification page off-site, please do let me know in the comments if you know of better identification sources for any plant.
