Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive: October 2017

October 2017 was a generally successful month during which good progress was made on the Folk Flora.  46 items of information were received from 18 contributors, mainly via the Wild Flowers of Britain & Ireland Facebook Group.  Thank you everyone.  The Archive now contains 7588 items of information from 2140 contributors.

7597 searches were made of the website, up from 5716 searches made in October 2016.

Talks were given to the Preston Society and at the South London Botanical Institute, walks were led in Ruskin and Battersea Parks, both in London, and a number of events, including the Hampstead Heath Conker Championships and the Tooting Common Pumpkin Parade, again both in London, attended.
