    I have so much uncultivated spaces here, I probably have what they need to bread, I dont know what that is, but its probably here! If not its in the fields, the farmer is organic so we have huge margins of weeds around the edges.

    An organic farmer. How lovely Lyn. I'm surrounded by the complete opposite.

    Not so good when those big fluffy seed heads pop, silky threads everywhere!

    Do you know what weed they breed on Nut?

    I associate them with bedstraws Lyn but as non natives they've probably had to adapt a bit.

    I haven't got much ladies bedstraw at the moment but lots of hedge bedstraw. Not sure they're breeding here though, It takes 2 and most years I only see one.
