    Primrose (Primula). Edible leaves and flowers. I think the roots may be edible as well but you'd have to check. Goes well in a wild salad.

    I am a gardener, so it would be pretty bad if I didn't know them.
    (I'm gonna wish I hadn't said that now:eek:)

    If I think about it next time I'm out and about, I'll try to get some pics of plants, edible, poisonous, whatever.

    (I bagged up that tinder for you yesterday mate, in a big paper feed sack so hopefully it will dry out a bit in the meantime;))

    There are many types of wild plants that you can eat, some taste very nice and some are deadly, my advice to you is to get yourself a good referance book and start to identify some, when out on the forum weekends talk to some of the other members to point out the ones that they know, on no accout just go out and pick something and eat it causes it looks tasty and nice, untill your 100% sure its ok
