Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Floral crosses

Posted on by royvickery |

In recent years many Anglican churches have prepared bare wooden crosses  for Easter Sunday and invited their congregations to bring flowers to decorate them.  It is not known when this practice started; does anyone know?  The cross here was displayed outside St Anselm’s church, Kennington Road, London Borough of Lambeth, Easter, 1 April, 2018.

Comment by Roy Vickery, November 2023:  I think the first floral cross that I remember seeing was outside Lyme Regis, Dorset, parish church early in the 1960s, when there was a cross covered with daffodils, Narcissus cv.
