Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive: May 2014

Posted on by royvickery |

Material flowed in during May so the Archive now contains 6756 items of information from 1672 contributors.

An appeal in BSBI [Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland] News stimulated useful correspondence, information was collected at the South London Botanical Institute’s Chelsea Fringe Fete,  and a Getting Close to Plants course at Glenthorne Quaker Centre, in Grasmere, provided an opportunity to discuss matters with like-minded people.  Many new photographs were added to the website.

8156 searches were made of the website.  As usual, any comments, corrections and additional records would be gratefully received; please send them to
