Hiding somewhere in this picture is a Giant Hogweed - if you look
carefully, you just might spot it.

Only a problem if you break the stems. The sap will bring you out in
horrible blisters.

That's one of the Gunnera (sp) isn't it? Giant's rhubarb. Giant
hogweed is is in the same family as cow parsley.

Hi Lone Wolf

I think someone has been feeding that hogweed with lots of fertilzer !!!


Any chance of borrowing your pic to put on Y2u with a link back to your website ?

It could very well be.
Looking closer the leafs seem more rounded than Hogweed's leafs.
Considering that one is in a public park at Minehead, there's a good
chance that it ain't Hogweed ( the council would surely get rid of it if
it were ).

Ooops - guess botany ain't for me ;-)

Feel free to use any image from the "club" website - but it looks like
that plant in the piccy ain't a Giant Hogweed - ah well, can't win 'em
all.
