    Some people are nervous about picking Cow Parsley, in case they are mistaking it for Hemlock (poisonous). I find the easiest way to distinguish between the two is the stem. Have a look at this advice which describes the difference in the stems.

    Don't be. Learn ...we'll help you. Its really easy if you do it bit by bit. Some stuff is practically impossible to get wrong. Its a really good time to learn as you've got flowers & leaves to go on.

    Your mission, set by King Joey, is to find some Hawthorn trees & post pics on here

    I agree that the best tactic is to try and identify one plant at a time otherwise it's easy to get a bit overwhelmed by the sheer variety of wild plants and trying to work out what they are.

    A couple of years ago I was a complete novice to foraging. I found the best way to build up my confidence was to start off with ones that I couldn't possibly mistake for anything else, such as goosegrass, dandelion and plantain and slowly built up from there.

    Also don't forget fresh grass will be appreciated by a lot of buns. I've managed to stay one step ahead of the council lawn mowers and have been picking bagfuls of long stranded succulent looking fresh grass. Been going down a storm with my two!
