I cannot find the right bit in S&S, the book, and the e-text has no search engine on it (they obviously don't have an H.C. like we do! ).....
BUT, isn't there a bit where Lucy Steele is making a basket for one of the little Middletons? I always assumed that she was making it out of beads or something, but I suppose a rush basket is quite possible! Perhaps the gathering of the rushes was inspired by this bit of the book- they eliminated Lady M and her brood, but kept the rushes!
Then there's always that silly addendum to P&P1- it has Mr Collins planting rushes in the most amazing floating Hat........
