Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

REMINDER: Enjoying Plants

Posted on by royvickery |

On Sunday 5 August Roy Vickery will be leading a stroll, Enjoying Plants, in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park,  near Mile End tube station, starting at 2.30 p.m. and lasting for about 90 minutes.  For further details see the Events page on this website.

Report:  About 20, mostly local, people turned up on  a sweltering afternoon to spend about 90 minutes enjoying the Cemetery’s varied flora.  Most of our stopping places were in wooded areas, but we occasionally ventured into the open.  Plants seen and discussed included viper’s bugloss (Echium vulgare), the styles of which are forked like a snake’s tongue, and two teasels: the common wild teasel (Dipsacus fullonum) and the rarer small teasel (D. pilosus).
