Weed ID Please

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Weed ID Please

Post by SarahRadley » 18 Mar 2017, 17:45

Hi,

I was out and about today picking weeds for my Hermanns and came across this. I've searched for it but can't find what it is.

Any idea ?

It was picked from parkland in Berks, UK.

Thanks in advance,

Sarah

Edit - I too don't seem to be able to attach the photo :( I've sent it by e-mail - hope that's ok !!

Edit 2 - Thank you so much to the admins who replied to me via e-mail and have ID the plant as SowThistle - Turbo will love to chomp on that tomorrow I'm sure.
