PURSLANE is mostly thought of as a weed but is quite edible. Pick it before it flowers and use in salads. It does not have a lot of taste but contains Omega 3, most unusual for a plant. Maybe just the thing after the festive season!

Have been seeing Phillip for nearly 40 yrs. OMG that makes me old doesn't it. LOL. I would be lost without him, I have no faith in Orthodox medicine, has never helped me. I have a Verrry long medical history. Phillip and all his staff are the nicest and most compassionate people. Phillip has also cared for many animals of mine, leaving Vets in disbelief of their recovery. So why would I go elsewhere.
