Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

REPORT: Wildflower Walk, Cranham Marsh

Posted on by royvickery |

About 15 people turned up for Roy Vickery’s Wildflower Walk through Cranham Marsh Nature Reserve, in Upminster, on 12 July.  Despite heavy rain earlier in the day, the evening was fine and warm (as usual for this event) and we spent about two hours discussing some of the plants on the site.  These included spindle (Euonymus europaeus) formerly used for skewers and to kill  head-lice, and rosebay willowherb (Chamerion angustifolium) which was formerly a rare plant but is now widespread.

£150 was collected for local Green Party funds, and it was reported that ‘feedback afterwards was enthusiastic’.
