Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore walks and talks 2022

Roy Vickery hopes to be available to provide walks and talks discussing the folklore and traditional uses of plants throughout 2022.

The walks, which rarely cover long distances,  can take place anywhere where there is a variety of  common plants – churchyards and cemeteries, parks and commons, and even, providing they are not too busy, pavements.  The talks are similar to the walks, but instead of taking people to the plants Roy brings the plants to the people.

There is usually no charge for events in the London area, and only travel expenses are charged for events elsewhere.

If you would like to arrange a walk or talk, or would like to discuss the possibility of doing so, please contact
