Can You Recognise Plants ?

Ask a Question

I am not a gardener, so can recognise only recognise the most common flowers and plants. So, I would have been completely, oblivious to these 'Cannabis' plants, spotted in a council display in Dorset

To my untrained eyes, I would have thought it was either a weed, no pun intended, or mint. As they are too tall for the flower display.

Would you have recognised it ?

I can see that it’s cannabis plant only because years ago a doctor pointed outside to his courtyard while we were having a coffee. We assumed his son planted them!

I don't know what it is either certainly not a tomato or chilli , but getting too big -pull them out . I blame feeding wild birds -you never know what's in that bag of birdfood - what goes in one end comes out the other -seemingly in your container !

If it was my garden it would be another tree saplings to pull out, I really should just grow trees for a living.

They’re instantly recognisable. And to be fair, the locals here would’ve gotten their cut before it could ever grow that big

I'm not a gardener but I could tell straight away that it was a cannabis plant. I'm amazed it is still there and people haven't been trying to help themselves!
