Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

REMINDER: Wild Flower walk, Saturday 16 April

Posted on by royvickery |

Roy Vickery will be leading a Wild Flower Walk for the Friends of Brompton Cemetery, on Saturday 16 April, starting at 2 p.m., and lasting for about 75 minutes.  For further information see the Events page on this website.

Report:  Seven people turned up and apparently enjoyed an hour examining and discussing plants at the north end of the Cemetery.  Plants discussed included stinging nettle, Urtica dioica, and dock, Rumex sp.  According to one participant: ‘In Canada docks are commonly used to treat nettle stings; docks and nettles always grow together’.
