The Ideal Plant For The Lazy Gardener.

Hi Wil


We know ragwort is poisonous to cattle, horses and sheep but it does brighten up the landscape!

For those who can't be bothered to do any work in the garden or on their land, it is a godsend! It just takes over.

Have you seen the fields of ragwort? If you're not too knowledgeable you might confuse it with the rape crop!

So.... what justification can there be for growing it?

BUT even worse... what justification can there be for knowingly putting cattle and their calves and horses and their foals in such fields to graze?

Some farmers and some horse breeders do!!! Here on our island- of which we like to feel so proud.

AND some of the owners get subsidies from the government! Animal welfare is of no importance to such people.

Shouldn't those who control DEFRA also share the blame for suffering?
