Thanks Laura, I know we do, and lots of modern medicines come from plants we consider as weeds. Teasels grow to over 2m, they look fantastic and statuesque but mine have a habit of seeding in the little nook at the very front of the border... @columbiariver
Teasel. Which came first the plant or the action? Used to raise the nap of woollen fabrics, it is the flower of #Kendal. It has self-seeded madly & many are over 7' tall but I can't bring myself to cut them down...
