The most harmful weeds growing in our district are bulky-shans, thistles Dandelion, Wild ivy and Burdock. These weeds spread rapidly and they also impoverish the land. Most of these weeds grow in good soil except the burdock it is found wild in waste places.
Wild-ivy spreads rapidly through vegetables and rose-bushes, it does not grow in grazing land.
The herbs that have medicinal properties are Dandelion, Nettles and Thistle root. Dandelion is good for delicate people to eat raw.
Nettles are boiled and are given to people to purify the blood.
Thistle root is good for abscess and other sores and boils.
Dandelion is yellow flowered and is found along banks and in ditches.
