Ground-elder as an introduction to the Apiaceae family

Noticed recently that one of the most menacing ‘weeds’ in this family I have done as a post earlier was lost on my site so will have to do this again!

See here for part 2: there is a part 3, highlighting the medicinal uses more.

Ground-elder is mentioned by the RHS as a big menace in the garden and therefore an excellent reason for me to do this post!
