Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive: April 2020

Posted on by royvickery |

As with all else, activities were severely restricted during the month due to coronavirus.  However, by using the internet a good amount of new information, mainly relating to plant names, flowed in, with 39 items of information being received from 33 contributors.  Thank you everyone!  The Archive now contains 8228 items of information from 2570 contributors.

Although it was impossible to hold lectures or walks, a daily plant-of-the-day post was placed on Facebook pages of the Friends of Tooting Common and the South London Botanical Institute.  It is hoped that one or two virtual talks can be delivered in May.
