Migration of people and plants to Manchester Christmas Market

Thematic Collecting

One migration story I’ve been looking into is how plants get to the UK (either by accident or design). In December I decided to visit the Manchester Christmas markets  with David Gelsthorpe to see what people had brought along to sell.

First we went to see what horticultural delights had arrived from the Netherlands on the Dutch nursery stalls.

I decided to buy some bulbs to grow and add to the collection by pressing the flowers later in the year.

Then we found a lovely stall specialising in Greek herbs, herbal teas and honey.
