Wild Food: Hairy Bittercress

Growing hairy bittercress

One of the things I love about teaching foraging is changing people's opinions about 'weeds'.

Actually, I don't need to do anything to change people's opinions because these weeds are so amazing and some are so tasty, my work is done for me!

Hairy bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta) is one such weed. In this blog I share where to find it, how to identify it, how to use it and why to eat it!

  1. I get so much of this in my garden as over the hedge where I grow most of my vegetables in raised beds, is a field full of wild plants an flowers.

    I have tried this for the first time and love it.

    Thanks Rachel
