Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Folk Flora update

Vickery’s Folk Flora is now at the printers.
This work represents the culmination of more than 40 years spent collecting, studying, and writing about, the folklore and traditional uses of plants which are native to, or cultivated in, Britain and Ireland. During these years over 2,100 people contributed their memories, and many others helped in other ways.
Since December 2017 the book has been with its publishers, Weidenfeld & Nicholson, part of Orion Publishing Group, where it has been painstakingly scrutinised and many useful comments and corrections made.
Publication remains on schedule for 4 April 2019. For publicity enquiries please contact Zabiba Kohli,
