The flora and fauna
Guernsey has almost as many flowers in winter as in spring. Touring inland is a pleasure. Narrow lanes weave their way across the island passing quaint villages, tracts of woodland and secret valleys where an abundance of wild flowers flourish in the mild climate. Wild flowers fill the hedgerows and cover the cliff tops too. Guernsey’s best known export (apart from tomatoes) is flowers and most of the freesias, roses and carnations sold in the UK come from the island.
