During my monthly meeting of the South Carolina Herbal Society this week, we learned that “weeds” can tell us something about our soil structure. Most of these plants are actually wildflowers or herbs. Basically, what we call weeds are nothing more than wild plants. Plants are intelligent and have an underground communication system. They know where it’s best for them to grow. So, if we listen to them, we will know better what to plant in that soil or how to amend the soil to plant what we want.
