Just for fun. If you think you know what it is then leave your comment below. One go per person and remember the clues may lead you up the wrong path!
This species can be found growing in hedgerows and areas of grassland. Identification must be correct, otherwise you may get more than you bargained for when handling. The leaves are covered in fine hairs. Cordage can be made from the stems, but there are better alternatives out there. The leaves may be used as a vegetable and are still often eaten in some parts of the world. This species has lots of uses, and as well as those mentioned above it has been used to heal people. A good way to identify it is to rub a leaf, although you may wish you hadn’t. So what is it?
UPDATE - As this is still going on I have decided to give an extra clue. so here it goes....
It's a wild food, and although common, it is rare to eat it. Growing in the hedgerows it likes to hide, often under nettles, were it cuts through to the light, when it reaches its full height.
