What's In a Plant's Name?
Thu 22 September 2016, 16:30 – 18:30 BST
The names of our wildflowers are an extraordinarily rich source both of cultural history and insights into the character, behaviour and uses of the plant. As well as the standard English names, there are a wealth of old regional names. On this in depth walk, find out about Thousand Leaf Grass, Pincushions, Sticky Jacks, Wartwort, Stinking Bob and Church Steeples, among others growing in the woods and meadows of the Cemetery Park.
Led by botanist Terry Lyle who has over 20 years experience of environmental education in Tower Hamlets.

The Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park has a programme of short biodiversity related courses for both beginners and professionals, covering a wide range of topics. Our courses are suitable for those who work or volunteer in parks, housing estates, nature reserves, community gardens, schools and other public or semi-public open spaces. However, anyone with an interest in the topic will also find the courses valuable.
