Discover what’s growing around your feet in your street!
See what wonderful species are growing in the cracks and tree pits of South London: learn more about weeds and their origins. This is a repeat of a successful event examining pavement weeds we held in May; pavement floras rapidly change, so it will be interesting to see what has survived and which new plants have arrived.
If you would like to visit the SLBI garden at 12 after the walk, please book via our website.
Roy is a renowned botanist specialising in plant-lore and also president of the SLBI, as well as the author of Vickery’s Folk Flora.
NB Participants are limited to the numbers currently permitted by the government regarding social distancing, we will be opening this up to 10 people due to distancing issues.

NB: Toilets are possibly available, walking spaces are on hard ground. Nearest station: Tulse Hill – a 5 minute walk.
Tickets: Donation only please. Please book via the Eventbrite ticket booking system below.
