Plant / weed ID

At the bottom of the plant there is a weed. I would like to know the name of the weed before I cut it away, so I know what to keep an eye out for in future. There was a hedge close to this spot previously so wonder if it is a hedge bramble.


  • The top half of the plant that has the weed at the bottom.

    If it pricks your fingers when you grab it then it’s a Bramble, don’t cut if off, you need to dig out the root. 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Thankyou Lyn, it bit me earlier so it’s a bramble. Will dig it out 👍
