Shropshire, United Kingdom
I want to know where to buy and how to grow Onopordum acanthium; Cotton Thistle. This Thistle should have very large silvery grey leaves with a 'woolly' coating, can you confirm I've got the right thistle?
I have MS and the large leaves from this plant can be boiled in water, the water saved, then frozen in the form of ice cubes. The resulting ice cubes are very medicinal for my condition. Once melted and honey has been added, the drink helps with MS Spasms each morning. I used this thistle many years ago but have lost track of any leaves from this specimen.
Can you help and advise me please?
