Question From: M. Alaszewski - MICHIGAN
Q: Hi, many, many years ago (according to my 88 year old mother) you wrote a column describing a weed/plant that your mother-in-law gave you to treat a bad leg or ankle. My mother thinks this weed could be used as a treatment for her great-grand son's red-wine skin issue. Do you recall the name of the plant/weed? Do you have a picture of this? Do you have any knowledge of possible other uses for this plant? Thanks in advance.
The weed was plantain. If you search google for plantain, you are sure to find photos. Best Nancy and Happy Gardening
