Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive – March 2022

Posted on by royvickery |

Again little material was collected during the month; six items of information being received from six contributors, bringing the totals to 8992 items of information from 3059 contributors.

Although some interesting correspondence was received via the website – thank you Jane Lawson and Kirsty Stevens – it was disappointing that no response was received to a request for Cornish plant-lore.  15 posts were added to the website’s blog.

One walk, Signs of Spring, was led for the Friends of Tooting Common, and three minor publications were produced:

Cemetery flora:  Hogweed, Heracleum sphondyliumFONC News 155: 9-10.

Arbutus unedoFriends of  Brompton Cemetery Magazine 73: 5.

Wild yarrow, Friends of Brompton Cemetery Magazine 73: 14-15.
