Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

REMINDER: Upcoming walks

Posted on by royvickery |

Two walks during the next week, see Events page for further details:

Tuesday 11 May:  Around the Scope, a walk led by Roy Vickery, discussing the past, present and future flora of Wandsworth Common; fully booked.

Report:  Five people, the maximum permitted under covid restrictions, turned up and enjoyed almost two hours wandering around the area and discussing how its flora had changed over the past 150 years, and how it might change in the future.

Friday 14 May:  Tree Walk led by Roy Vickery, Kennington Park; two tickets remaining.

Report:  Five of us spent a rather chilly 90 minutes wandering around the Park and examining some of its trees, including cornelian cherry (Cornus mas) and cork oak (Quercus suber).  Foragers amongst us were pleased to see springbeauty, perhaps more appropriately known as miner’s lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata), but no one felt tempted to try samples from the plant growing at the base of an old London plane (Platanus x hispanica) tree.
