Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Columbia Road Flower Market, December 2020

Every year since 2015 a visit has been paid to the Columbia Road Flower Market, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, on a Sunday in December, usually the last before Christmas, to see which Christmas plants are becoming popular or losing popularity.

On Saturday 19 December 2020 the Prime Minister announced that due to an increase in Covid-19 infections would be placed the new Tier 4, severely restricting people’s activities.  So when the Road was visited on Sunday 20 it was devoid of any stalls.
