I'll have to keep a lookout for that, I have yet to try it.
I'm currently making nettle soup; I'm hoping it'll help shift my third cold in less than two months.

I bought a couple of bladder campion plants from the local garden centre a few years back. they are still going strong with next to no input from me. The flavour's quite nice, if fairly mild.

Are any other of the campions edible? I tried nibbling on a red campion leaf a couple of years back and it seemed pretty bitter...
