I am conducting a survey of the folklore and uses of wild plants, so would be pleased to hear of any memories, readers might have.

Were you ever told not to bring certain flowers indoors? Do you remember any local plant names? Did you ever play games with wild plants, collect wild plants for food, or use herbal remedies?

If you did, please contact me: Roy Vickery, 9 Terrapin Court, London, SW17 8QW, or Thank you for any help which you may be able to provide.
