Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive – August 2021

After two months during which a good quantity of material flowed in, things slowed down in August with only seven items of information being received from six contributors.  Thus the total now stands at 8933 items from 3011 contributors.

More enquiries than usual were received via the website, and these were fully answered as quickly as possible; unfortunately few enquirers acknowledged these replies, so it is unknown whether or not they considered them to be useful.

Two walks were held, one in the Mole Valley, Surrey, and the other on Tooting Common, London Borough of Wandsworth.
