Posted on by royvickery |

On 31 July 2020 Roy Vickery will be leading a walk discussing those growing in Streatham Park, London Borough of Wandsworth, starting at 11 a.m. and cocntinuing for about an hour.  For further details, and to book, see  http://www.slbi.org.uk/events/ 

Report:  This event was fully booked, so five people, the maximum allowed under the government’s Covid-19 regulations, spent about 90 minutes walking around the area, discussing the trees growing there, and gratefully enjoying their shade.  Species seen included cedar-of-Lebanon (Cedrus libani), southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora), strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo), and the remains of Dr Johnson’s mulberry (Morus nigra) tree.
