Plant folklore tied to Halloween

The Denver Post has done a great little article about something that we don't often think about when it comes to Halloween: plants!

Some of the folklore is well-known and widespread, such as garlic warding off vampires and rosemary keeping away witches; but there are other more rare examples in the article, such as sitting under the European Elder on midsummer's eve allowing one to witness the King of Fairyland.

Check out the article - it's well worth a moment of your time.
