The Spitalfields Life blog has just published my Brief history of London’s mulberries. I’ll be writing something on Chelsea’s mulberries for the Morus Londinium blog soon.

London mulberry project
In May this year the Conservation Foundation launched a new project called Morus Londinium that I helped to put together. From now until the end of next year I will be writing regular blogs for their website. The idea is to document and preserve London’s mulberry tree heritage and to research the stories behind some of the older ones, which are sometimes survivors of a past that has disappeared under urban development.
My latest post is on the mulberries of Cadogan Place Gardens, on the edge of Chelsea.
London’s mulberry heritage
The Morus Londinium project on London’s mulberry tree heritage and its heritage mulberries is now up and running. We are carrying out the most comprehensive survey of London’s mulberry trees, with an interactive online map for anyone to add trees they know of, or learn about trees all over London. I am editor and researcher for the project.
