Hello all, my Father worked for the local council and one of his tasks was digging graves in the local cemetery, one day he showed me a bindweed root that was half an inch thick, he found it at 6 feet down!

And can I eat them without ending up in A&E?

Have a look at this site. Then throw them in the bin because you will still not be sure.

How about this one? The roots go down very deep.
I`m left handed, what`s your excuse?

I think the leaves look too smooth & the stem too woody for that, however, I don't know what it is!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

I think it's Redshank, note the similar dark patch in the centre of the leaf:

Certainly fits the description DD, although the ones I have appear to have perrenial roots when I try to dig them out. It is listed as an annual, growing from seed, but also a member of the dock family.

From this, it appears to be a very tenacious weed, with seed remaing viable for up to 45 years!

I wouldn't be suprised if the roots appear to be perennial. (Assuming I've hit on the correct I.D.).

Yes it is Red Shank/Red Leg

The roots go on and on and are also red!! Digging it out everytime you see any seems the only way to get rid of it

Blimey

Don't eat them! They have a sac at the bottom which is a fair indicator of "oh dear, why did want to do that" after you have given them a try.

I am a fairly experienced forager and there is only one rule - 99% is NOT good enough. You must be certain.

Happy foraging.

Mike
