Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Quite.

It was actually JayG who first named it!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

I know it as Wood Avens. I allow some to grow among the veggies as it attracts bees and it is easy to control by hand pulling and composting.

We must have a tougher variety here, as you'd never pull it out by hand, the roots are too tenacious!

I find it pulls out fairly easily from open ground but it is also rather fond of growing in the joints between my paving slabs..................... >:(

I think it is more that the soil is very sandy down here and the roots are easier to pull out. If you leave it to go to seed it will take over as it is a pioneer plant - one of the first to populate recently disturbed soil.

This is a bit of a guess. I think it is an 'escaped' salsify plant, rather than a native plant.  :ohmy:

You are correct. The roots are edible. Also known as the the Oyster plant. Thanks for that.
