While we are on the subject…

…here is a list of ragwort’s many common names, some of them downright vulgar:

common ragwort
hysterical weed,
tansy butterweed,
mare’s fart,
ragweed,
dog standard,
felon weed, 
swine grass 
scrog 
weeby.

stinking willie,
tansy ragwort, 
benweed, 
St. James-wort, 
stinking nanny
staggerwort, 
dog standard, 
cankerwort, 
stammerwort.

We like marefart and stinking willie but our absolute favourites are scrog and weeby.
