Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Scottish wildflowers

Posted on by royvickery |

The Wild and Wonderful World of Scotland’s Wild Flowers, a leaflet recently produced by the charity Plantlife, aims to ‘enthuse beginners about Scottish wild flowers’. Largely inspired by William Milliken and Sam Bridgewater’s Flora Celtica (2004), it provides, amongst other things, information on medicinal and other uses and local names, and is an inexpensive and useful resource for people who organise wildflower events.
The leaflet can be downloaded from the website
