Posted on by royvickery |

September was a quiet month with only five items of information being received from five contributors, bringing the total up to 8442 items from 2736 contributors.

Five plant walks were led for the South London Botanical Institute, and two walks were led for other organisations.

One minor publication was produced:

‘Green alkanet’ in FONC News 149: 5-6.
