      Hi Beth

      I work with a few plants that are great for different reasons, I have to research giant hogweed which is super poisonous! The sap burns your skin and causes blisters. Also Himalayan balsam, another alien plant has exploding seed pods and can grow tall, I found some that were 4 meters tall, I got lost underneath them!
