    I have that book and agree it is excellent. I would also have loved to go to the foraging days, but live too far away

    Yes, that is one of the Avens (Herb Bennet). It will develop yellow flowers. My rabbits like this.

    I'm not 100% sure on this, but I think it's a young Willowherb. It's at that stage in my garden at the moment. Check the actual plant against a description on the internet or ID book. If it is then it's a favourite with my rabbits

    Btw you will find the Twigs Way foraging book very useful.

    Virginia Richardson's 'Rabbit Nutrition' is also very good, and has been around a long time.

    As is this page of Frances' website:
