Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive: October 2012

Some useful material was collected at the Natural History Museum’s Hedgerow Harvest event early in the month. Such events attract people from many parts of the world and thus yield comparative information from outside the British Isles.
Appeals for information on ‘unlucky’ plants which were published in the SLBI Gazette and FLS News produced only three responses, all from Ulster.
The Archive now contains 6338 items from 1516 contributors.
