Horsetail and lawn daisies

04 October 2020

This print is a panoply of some of the garden's worst invaders, from lawn daisies to horsetail it has it all. 

Known as a 'living fossil' there is evidence that horsetail formed a large part of dinosaur diets, the young stems have been known to be eaten by humans too, kind of like a weird asparagus.

As for the lawn daisy the young leaves and flowers are also in fact edible and can be used in salads or as a potherb. And anyway who can argue with a plant that brings a bit of diversity and colour to lawns?
