Oh No! to Ragwort

by Karen
(Wales)

Hi Wil


Such a dangerous plant to horses humans sheep cattle. Can't believe anyone likes it apart from moths!

Don't let ragwort flower and seed. The effects can only been seen after a long time ingesting it, either in the 'rosette' stage or even in hay.

Don't pull it without gloves and a mask as the 'dust' can also get into your lungs, and burn it.

Regards

Karen




Well Karen

It's quite clear you won't be voting to make Ragwort the County Flower of Anglesey.

You ar so right, it's one of the most dangerous, and yet manageable plants around. And thank you for posting the appropriate advice on how to deal with it.

I'll add that when you've lifted it properly put it in a bag and take it to the nearest recycling plant.

Thanks and Keep in touch, Karen.

Wil

Anglesey - Mother of Wales?
by: Maureen

Hi Wil

Anglesey was once the 'Bread Basket" of Wales - now it would certainly be offering a poisonous chalis to its farmers and hoofed animals!

Ragwort is the predominant plant - and it kills!

Not dramatically but surreptitiously by destroying the liver of suceptible animals - cattle and horses in particular.

It spreads because of ignorance and apathy. Definitely not a plant of which to be proud of growing.

Even more deadly in its dying.

It would be a fantastic achievement if this Island reduced its deadly dominance.

Appreciate and encourage the beautiful and delicate Welsh poppy!

Warmest regards

Wil

Ragwort Oil
by: Anonymous

There is an oil of ragwort for health, external use only.

Don't hear so much on it, so it cannot be so popular.

Sounds like PC alternative stuff again.
