Report: Seven people turned up to enjoy a sunny hour looking at, and discussing, some of the cemetery’s plants. Amongst these were thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana), which having a short life-cycle is used in genetic research, and green alkanet (Pentaglottis sempervirens), native to southwest Europe, introduced to the British Isles as a dye-plant, and now rapidly spreading. Despite its name it produces a red dye; the ‘green’ in the English name being a contraction of its earlier name, evergreen alkanet. Several participants contributed memories to P-LA. Thank you.
