Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive – April 2023

Posted on by royvickery |

April was a generally satisfactory month with 47 items of information, mainly relating to local names for cuckooflower, Cardamine pratensis, were received from 45 contributors, 28 of them being new.  Thus the Archive now contains 9,204 items of information from 3,199 contributors.  Thank you everyone!

Visits were paid to Elche, Spain, for its Palm Sunday celebrations, and Coventry for its Nagar Kirtan procession.  Two plant-lore walks were well attended, but the number of people who attended the plant survey of West Norwood Cemetery was disappointing. 26 posts were added to the website’s Blog page.
