I do not drag multiple folders simultaneously, but one folder which contains subfolders.
I use the following field scripts
IF there is a folder the dragdata["files"] THEN set the dragaction to copy
## The DragEnter checks if a folder is dragged. No folder no dragaction.
##dragDrop then removes the file:// from the path
IF the platform="Linux" THEN replace "file://" WITH "" in fld 1 of me
If you need a list of that subfolders or the files in the subfolder you can use the following script from David Vaughan. I found it in the ScripterScrapbook.
FUNCTION walkDir dirPath
put empty into tList
set defaultfolder to dirPath
put the files into fList
REPEAT FOR each line fLine in fList
IF char 1 of fLine <> "." THEN
put fLine into fData -- & comma & last item of fLine into fData
put dirPath & "/" & fData & return after tList
get the folders
REPEAT FOR each line x in it
IF char 1 of x <> "." THEN
put walkDir(dirPath & "/" & x) after tList
