I saw this Garlic Mustard growing in some sand dunes at the mouth of the Conwy Estuary whilst out paddling this weekend. Although the one I came across was a lonely specimen, they are very common in open woodland and hedgebanks and can become invasive. It is also known as 'Jack the Hedge'.
The leaves give off a distinctive garlic odour when crushed and are completely edible. Historically Garlic Mustard was used in the kitchen to flavour fish and meat and is still used in herbal medicine to treat gangrene, ulcers and sore throats.
