With Stuart Read having found the mega rare Four-leaved Allseed growing in his road (!) in Great Cornard I duly popped down this morning to take a look. I found a few clumps of it growing in pavement cracks by the curb just 20 yards from his front door! Only really known from coastal sites in the SW it is a fantastic find albeit a rather insignificant looking 'micro-weed'.
While in the area I called in at a RNR near Long Melford to see Wild Liquorice and to my surprise I found a goodie of my own - Crested Cow-wheat. 3 or 4 plants were found at what looks like a new site for this very scarce and lovely plant. Along the same verge were Field Scabious, Common Restharrow, Agrimony and Wild Basil.
