Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

REMINDER – Urban Botany, 7 August 2020

Posted on by royvickery |

Roy Vickery will be leading a walk discussing the plants in Streatham Cemetery, Garratt Lane, SW17 (in Tooting, nearest tube station Tooting Broadway, not Streatham) on Friday 7 August, starting at 11 a.m. and continuing for about an hour.  Booking essential –

Report: Five people had booked, and despite the sweltering heat all turned up and spent about 90 minutes wandering around a small part of the Cemetery.  As dry conditions meant that few wildflowers were in good shape, we concentrated on trees, the most interesting of which were some fine Japanese pagoda, Styphnolobium japonicum, trees, in full bloom, and buzzing with honey bees.
