Starry Crossed Clover Rare Plant
« on: October 16, 2019, 04:11:31 pm »
 During my time as a East Beach Postman 1985 to 1999 I was aware of the location of the Starry Clover, which was listed as rare plant. a lady who lived at No 45 Old Fort Road forgotten her name now but she collected the seed from plants on Shoreham beach , the plants were being decimated by dogs fouling at one location and people unwittingly treading on the plants.  The lady sent the seeds to Kew for posterity,  The lady concerned was recognised as Woman of the year, sadly a few months later , she passed away. however the valuable seed were saved.
