Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive: June 2013

Posted on by royvickery |

June 2013 was a relatively successful month with information being received as a result of events at the Natural History Museum and Holland Park, both in London. Material received at the former was of particular interest in that much of it came from outside the British Isles, thus providing information on the wider distribution of practices and beliefs.
Also appreciated was material resulting from an appeal published in the Northern Scot newspaper. Scotland and Ireland remain under represented in the Archive, so material from these countries is particularly welcome.
The Archive now contains 6508 items of information from 1581 contributors (up from 6231 from 1489 at the end of June 2012).
