What are Weeds?

Weeds are plants which are growing in the wrong place. Weeds are usually the native plants which are best adapted to the environment where they grow. Weeds have been introduced in the past for culinary, medicinal or decorative purposes. Weeds produce seeds that can lie dormant in the soil for many years, germinating when it is cultivated, or imported with 'new' topsoil.
