Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive: January 2014

An intensive collecting effort early in the month produced some useful results; thanks to Margaret Bradley of Wolverhampton, Lois Chambers of Redcar, North Yorkshire, and Brian Downey of Appleshaw, Hampshire, for their interesting contributions. The Archive now contains 6707 items of information from 1650 contributors.
Work has continued on editing the Local Names database from which the Local Names page on the website is derived, and a start has been made by replacing images, largely derived from Wiki Commons, with ones specially taken for inclusion on it. Thanks to Carlos Bruzon for his advice and support concerning photography.
2736 searches of the website (up from 2065 in December 2013) were made during the month.
As usual, comments, additional information and corrections are welcome; please send them to
