Hi everyone,

We have some very large weeds in our garden that seem to to be taking over!!!  I've added a picture. Does anyone know what they are? the leaves and stalks are quite large, and they seem to be growing what can only be described as a "fruit" spikey things!!
they also smell horrible when you disturb the plants


 

Any help much appreciated

 

Thanks
Dan

Ah thank you, that is it......little bit alarmed having read your link, is this somehting I need to be concerned about, I really want to get rid of it, but not sure the best way

It's fascinating but it is toxic - but then so are many plants in our gardens.  If you have children in the garden I'd pull it up now.  If not I would just make sure it's pulled up and bagged and binned before the seeds begin to ripen.  Wear long sleeves and gloves.

All I have ever done is to pull it up and put the plant in the bin. Wash your hands maybe afterwards.
