Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive: December 2013

Posted on by royvickery |

Many thanks to Diana Rosenberg who collected and forwarded interesting information from members of the Hilltop Garden Club in Eastcombe, Gloucestershire, and to others, including Stephanie Penny of Sowerby, West Yorkshire, who contributed material during the month. The Archive now contains 6682 items of information from 1647 contributors.
2065 searches were made of the website.
Work on editing the Local Names database is almost complete, but it is unlikely that the revised version will be added to the website soon. In the meantime local names can be found by searching under Latin/Scientific or standard English names. Please contact the compiler – – if further information is required.
