Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive – December 2022

Posted on by royvickery |

As usual for the time of year, December was a quiet month, with only three items of information being received from three contributors, bringing the totals to 9,150 items from 3,168.   Only one event was held; an enjoyable plant-lore walk in West Norwood Cemetery.

20 posts were added to the website’s Blog page, and three minor publications were produced:

Cow parsley, aka mother-die, The Bedside (Wandsworth Society), 2022: 16-17.
