Some plants we consider weeds have medicinal properties such as:
Fennel (not the bulb type) = promotes milk flow, anti-inflammatory, circulatory stimulant.
Plantain = anti-catarrhal, antispasmodic.
Dandelion = diuretic, liver tonic.
Stinging nettle = astringent, circulatory stimulant, promotes milk flow.

Some weeds are also in place here to stop our little dog from doing his do-dos in unwanted places ;)
This is why I grow weeds in my garden (not in the garden beds but along side them).
