The folklore of wild plants

Sunday 17th June | 2pm - 5pm

Plant folklore is an immense topic, reflecting the central importance of wild plants in people’s lives, at least until recently.

We’ll look at broad aspects of plant folklore, including lore relating to St. John's Wort, Bird's Foot Trefoil, Herb Robert, and Viper's Bugloss.

The area of 'folklore' is broad, but can cover anything from: traditional beliefs concerning plants, local names of plants, herbal remedies, plants and plant materials used in traditional customs and religious festivals, sayings, riddles, tales and legends concerning planst, plants used in childrens games and pastimes.....and many many others.
