I've found a weed I've not come across before, can anyone tell us what it is and whether or not it's edible?

Thankyou,

Hi Paula

I have found this link. Do you think it could be Russian Comfrey.

Hmmm not sure Gail,

I've just got my weed books back from my friend. I wonder if it could be willowherb?

Hi Paula

I'm not sure if it is willow herb.

But I just looked it up on another tortoise sight and it says feed in moderation due to it being high in tannins. I have looked up tannins and although i don't really understand what they are, they didn't sound as if they were very good for us or anything else really.

Don't think I'd feed it to mine just in case.

Sorry.
