20 cemeteries, 12 rural and 8 urban, were visited twice in spring and summer 2020-2021 and all wild plants noted. 151 species were recorded in total, 88 being in both urban and rural. A mean of 39.0 species per site were found in the rural cemeteries and 38.4 in urban. 12 neophytes were recorded in rural cemeteries and 8 in urban sites.

Saxifraga granulata was present in quantity in two urban graveyards and Luzula campestris was widespread, being seen in 16 cemeteries.

These sites are very heavily managed with grass cutting and herbicide application and there were relatively few differences between urban and rural locations.
