Posted on by royvickery |

Midsummer Wild Flower Hunt, Brockwell Park, London Borough of Lambeth (nearest station Herne Hill), Wednesday 22 June, 7.00-c.8.30 p.m.  For further details see the Events page of this website.

Report:  Eleven people turned up to the packed park on a perfect summer’s evening, and spent about 90 minutes wandering around, discussing the 40 or so plants which were found in flower, and sampling some of the edible ones.

Anyone who wants a copy of the list of plants seen is requested to contact

Image:  tree mallow, Malva arborea, the fruits of which were sampled, though most people thought the fruits of common mallow, M. sylvestris, tasted better.
