Ragwort is a national treasure and should be celebrated. It’s a gloriously cheerful plant of the most intense yellow and green. It’s a vital part of our natural world and part of the complex relationships which result in the diversity of life in this country.
Ragwort is the victim of superstitious, unscientific nonsense peddled by people with a profound fear of nature. I propose that we have a National Ragwort Day to celebrate it. Who’s with me?
