    That will be it Douglas, I didn't look up the name. Out of interest where did you find it growing?


    I looked this one up after noticing it growing by the River Cych a couple of days ago, quite a familiar plant with an interesting story. Anyone know what it is?

    Bang on, one of Europe's oldest food flavouring plants, Alliaria petiolata also known as Jack-by-the-hedge, member of the mustard family.

    Hadn't realised it had culinary properties or the longevity of its popularity. Apparently it's use as a spice has been identified in digs alongside six thousand year old material. Never tried it but will give it a go tomorrow.
