Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Poppy bid rejected

According to the Evening Standard of 11 September 2013 an application from the Greenhithe Royal British Legion in Dartford, Kent, for funding to plant ‘millions of poppies’ (Papaver rhoeas) to commemorate the start of the First World War has been rejected by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

For a brief account of the use of poppies to commemorate people who have died in war see R. Vickery, Garlands, Conkers & Mother-die, 2010: 171.
