Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive – January 2024

January was another month during which no systematic collecting was undertaken; eight items of information were received from seven contributors, six of them new.  Thus the Archive now contains 9311 items from 3356 contributors.

13 posts were added to the website’s Blog page. Much time was spent organising the summer’s walk schedule (see Events page), and editing a book on English plant-names.  Few messages were received via the website.  Visits were paid to Nantwich for its Holly Holy Day, and to various events in London, and a podcast was recorded for FolkLands.
