up to you nikki. Most gardeners have some euphorbias somewhere. Wear gloves when you handle them and be gentle so it doesn't spurt.
I've handled them bare handed many times and only been damaged once
weed Geum urbanum, wood avens, seeds stick to everything and work their way round the garden
were the flowers purple or yellow?
Purple-Tragopogon porrifolius, salsify
Yellow, Tragopogon pratensis, jack go to bed at noon.
They close up in the afternoon
Those round lumpy things are seeds. So it flowered. But it's very low key. More of a foliage plant/weed.
Note Euphorbias are the ones that leak white stuff when you cut them and it can be painful on the skin
Good idea Matt. They do need to ripen on the plant
Caper spurge, Euphorbia lathyris, opinion will be devided on weed or plant. I quite like them
It was fennel that I was thinking about. But no smell no fennel
You dig Edd, I'm past it.
Does it smell of anything?
I should have remembered the link between law and ass
