Growing a Greener Glasgow

Can you identify common southside weeds?

Here are pictures of five of the most common weeds found on Glasgow’s southside. Do you recognise them?

By pulling them out, you can create more productive space for growing vegetables. If you pull them out at in May or early June, before they produce seeds, you will stop them spreading.

Of course a weed is merely a plant in the wrong place. Over the next two months or so tasty salad leaves could be grown instead of these weeds. See how many of the pictures below are familiar to you.
