Dr Gregory Kenicer has spent 20 years at the Royal Botanic Gardens, both as a student and botanist. His book Scottish Plant Lore is devoted to the history of the folk uses of Scotland's flora through the centuries. From the perennial ling heather which was used to make a traditional beer, to the leaves of the deciduous bog myrtle which are used as a flavouring in soups and stews and also, as a midge repellent. Dr Kenicer will give an Illustrated talk using both botanical art and photographs from the RBGE Herbarium providing an expert guide to the rich and surprising folklore of Scotland’s plants.
