Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive – October 2023

New material trickled in throughout the month with 15 items of information being recieved from 12 contributors, six of them being new.  Thus the Archive now contains 9276 items from 3240 contributors.

Four walks were led, and visits paid to the King Harold Festival at Waltham Abbey, the Chepstow Spudfest, Cambridge Apple Day, Southwell’s Bramley Apple Festival, and Newark’s All Souls Ceremony.

19 posts were added to the website’s blog.
