Ribwort Plantain – Plantago lanceolata

Another favourite, as it’s another very common weed, yet so useful as a medicine and food. The best thing for stings, from bees to nettles. Also good for deep cuts and as a tea for coughs.

Its seedheads remain for most of the winter providing food for Goldfinches and other seed-eating birds.

Good as a syrup, it also makes a great jam and can be dried to use as tea.
