Plant-Lore

Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

REMINDER: Two walks this week

Roy Vickery will be leading two plant walks in the London Borough of Wandsworth later this week:

Friday 16 October:  Signs of Autumn, Tooting Common.

Report:  Only one person booked for this walk, but we had a pleasant 75 minutes or so wandering around part of the Common, looking mainly at trees.

Saturday 17 October:  Mainly Trees, Battersea Park. Fully booked.

Report:  Five people, the maximum permitted, turned up for this walk, and spent a two hours or so discussing trees in the southwest corner of the Park, these included cornelian cherry (Cornus mas) from Europe, and Kentucky coffee-tree (Gymnocladus dioicus) from North America, the latter  being identified for us by veteran tree-walk enthusiast Irene Kettle.
