Carrot Fly, she who know’s more about plants than anyone else in the world, mentioned a plant who’s name I found highly amusing last night (and you would find it amusing too if you had done nothing but sit around the flat waiting for a delivery never to arrive and speaking to no-one and having the highlight of the day as cleaning your fridge). Rapistrum rugosnum, a brassica found mainly in wasteland and originated from the Black Sea and the Med and rather pretty. Common name Bastard Cabbage. Tee hee! Are there any crazily named plants you can think of readers?
