Tree And Plant Lore Series: The Pumpkin In Modern Folk Magic.

ello everyone, and welcome to this week’s instalment of the tree and plant lore series, part of the premium content subscription service.
This week, I have a special treat for all of my wonderful Diary Of A Folk Witch community, and that is a guest speaker!

Mark Buxton-Kelly is a practicing animistic Witch, as well as being both a recognised Druid within the Order or Bards, Ovates and Druids, and has worked with the Anglesey Druid Order.
A prolific and recognisable speaker within the Pagan community on tree and plant lore, he is often invited to speak at moots, camps and various Pagan conventions. He also happens to be my husband, and the first in what I hope will be a long line of guest speakers on this platform! You can find more of his work over on Instagram, at Druid Of Manannan or over on his blog.

As we are approaching the Witch’s Sabbat of Samhain, Mark has chosen to share with us some of the modern witch and folklore around the autumnal favourite, the pumpkin.

So, grab yourself a warm cup of your favourite brew, sit down, put your feet up, and enjoy this week’s article.

  1. Hello I’m new here. Thank you this was fascinating. Can you explain what you might use the servitor ink for in a bit more detail 🙏 and how you would do this. X

    • Hi there Penny! Lovely to hear from you and thanks for your kind feedback. As this is a guest blog, I can only offer you my perspective on servitors and the use of special or specific inks. Views which may be different from our guest writer. What I can do however, is to ask him to do a post on the private FB group detailing his take and the use of servitor ink for you if you would like? Are you a member of the group? If not, please email me at and we can get you sorted out. Best wishes, Zanna.
