Yes I am from Yorkshire, Pansyface thank you for the link it explains it really well.
There are so many folklore stories associated with hedgerow flowers, its understandable how as children we took them so litteraly!
I spoke to my Mum about them again this afternoon and she is convinced they are poisonous no amount of explaining would change her mind! I suppose at 86 she is unlikely to be swayed I owe my love of gardening to her, bless her.
