isatis tinctoria is now growing in prodigious luxuriance in the chalk-quarries close to the town [of Guildford]. It grows (in many instances) out of clefts in the precipitous chalk cliff, and makes almost a bush of flowers from the same root. Geranium lucidum I again found in my old locality, near St. Catherine’s Hill.
