Still clearing the boundary!

My hardest battle is, at present, with the rampant Blackberry which, covered with stout based prickles, arches metres long, over everything and lays another root once the tip reaches the ground.  However, Blackberry (Rubus fructicosus  L.), prized for its delicious jam and crumbles) is a useful medicinal herb.  The leaves are rich in tannins and a decoction of the dried leaves makes an astringent mouthwash to heal bleeding gums and mouth ulcers or drank to alleviate diarrhoea.
