Hi everyone, my name’s Leif, I was born in 1994 and grew up as a botanist in rural Wiltshire. I graduated with a degree in Biology from Oxford and I’m currently a PhD student at Kew Gardens.

I’m a published author and a botanical tutor, running plant identification training courses for The Species Recovery Trust. In a world where an interest in botany is becoming increasingly rare, I want to help put plants back on the map and I’m endeavoring to help do this through my teaching, research and publications.
