Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Open Garden Squares Weekend

Posted on by royvickery |

Update, 8 June: Following a successful time today, the exhibit about Plant-lore Archive will be on display in the Wildlife Garden again tomorrow, but there will be no wildfower walks. We are grateful to the Museum’s Caroline Ware, who is in charge of the Garden, for arranging this.

Over the weekend 8 and 9 June over 200 garden squares will be open to the public in London – see wwwopensquares.org. Some of these squares are private and not open to the public at other times; others are regularly open, but will be putting on special displays or events over the weekend.
The Wildlife Garden at the Natural History Museum in South Kensington is open to the public throughout the summer months, but on Saturday 8 June it will be holding a special open day between 12 noon and 5 p.m.
One of the displays will be Plant-lore Archive, showing some of the material it contains and encouraging further contributions. The display will be supplemented by two ‘Discover more about our Wildflowers’ walks around the Garden. These will commence at 2 and 4 p.m., and be led by Roy Vickery.
