Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

APPEAL to our younger users

Although it contains material collected as early as 1973, Plant-lore Archive started in earnest in the early 1980s, when it received information from people who had memories of what was known and done before the First World War.  We have lots of information from the years 1910 to 1950, but comparatively little more recent material.

We need to update our knowledge, and we are appealing for people born after, say 1950, and particularly after 1970, to send us their memories.   Therefore, if you have any knowledge of any of the topics listed on the Home Page of this website, please send them to

Thank you!
