Hello and welcome to my Blog:- Wonderful Weed Weekly!
I have also recently (January, 2019) started growing a very colourful plant called the Salvia again, of which I used to have a National Collection at former Rodbaston College in Staffordshire.
I am passionate about nature and would very much like to bring more of it into your garden by making it more colourful and beautiful for you, whilst also helping nature!
This blog will hopefully inspire you to think twice before you pull those weeds out of your garden by sharing some fascinating facts about them. For instance, did you know that weeds are actually helping your garden and that they are a plant in the right place and not as often said, a plant in the wrong place!
There are many wonderful blogs out there, so why need another one?
I have a desire to create an Ethno Botanical garden (see one of my earlier blogs) which grows just native plants and tells us, the visitors, about all their known uses for people. Every Botanical garden makes sense of the entire world of plants by classifying them. As I trained at Kew Gardens, I would also like to use the latest system of Classification here and hopefully give you a gentle introduction into this heavy subject.
