On June 16, I’ll be giving a virtual talk on my favourite topic…of course, that’s pavement plants!
Hundreds of plant species are thought to be growing on the pavements of London. These plants are often dismissed as “weeds”, yet they form a key part of our urban biodiversity. I will introduce some of the common plants that may be found while walking in the streets, but also some of the more surprising ones! With councils slowly reducing or phasing out their use of weedkiller, we may see more pavement plants in the future. I’ll highlight some examples from other countries, and show ways of making these plants more accepted in the urban landscape.
The talk is organised by the wonderful South London Botanical Institute, and will take place via Zoom.
