Dates of Plant Flowering

Just a little something I took from one of the books I found last month. We'll see how accurate it is!!!

From “Weather Lore - A Collection of Proverbs, Sayings & Rules Concerning the Weather”

Compiled & Arranged by Richard Inwards FRAS. Published by Pryor Publications 1999, First published by Elliot Stock “around 1893”.

List of Common Plants

And the dates at which they ought to be in full flower. The forwardness of the seasons may be judged by the punctuality of the appearance of the blossoms.

Month Date Flower
January 2 Groundsel
January 4 Hazel
January 5 Bearsfoot
January 6 Common Dead Nettle
January 9 Laurel
January 10 Gorse
January 11 Early Moss
January 14 Barren Strawberry
January 15 Ivy
January 17 Anemone (Garden)
January 19 White Dead Nettle
January 27 Earth Moss
January 28 Double Daisy
January 30 Maidenhair

I've got the full set which I'll post up once it's coded. I'll also start with working out the scientific names... though some of them may be a little problematical!
