Broad-leaved Dock    

Broad-leaved Dock can be found in gardens, waste ground and hedgerows. It is a troublesome garden weed because of a long taproot.

It is bigger and more robust than other docks. The lower leaves are oval/oblong and the upper leaves are narrower. The flowers grow in clusters along the stem.
