Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Do you …?

Do you find this website interesting, or, perhaps, useful?  If you do (or even if you don’t), we would appreciate feedback on what you think is good, or what you think could be improved.

Also does the website stimulate memories of plant-lore which you know?  If it does, please share it with us.  P-LA started in the 1980s, when some of its contributors had memories stretching back to the early decades of the twentieth-century; we have more information relating to the years 1900-1920 than to the years 1980-2000, and would like to remedy this.  Your help in doing so will be much appreciated.
