Three new plants added to the Keele list over the last couple of days. Shining Cranesbill and Cut-leaved Cranesbill (not illustrated) by the Sustainability Hub and Common Cornsalad on an allotment bed in the Walled Garden. The latter plant is listed as "rare but increasing" in Staffordshire - which is a shame as it has been dug up! I suppose that's the nature of adventives; they come and they go. I hope it managed to set a few seeds first.
