When it comes to plants at Halloween, it's about
much more than pumpkins...
The origins of Halloween are thought to be rooted in the Celtic celebration of Samhain, a festival to mark the season of bringing in the harvests in preparation for winter.
It was thought that on this day, the 31 October, the boundaries between the worlds became blurred.
The dead returned to haunt the living, causing terrible catastrophe and illness.
Many myths and legends surround this day, with various rituals being performed in order to protect people from wandering evil spirits, as well as to predict fortunes and destinies.
