Just thought I'd post this as I noticed a plant earlier that has clearly benefited from its surroundings.

I picked the leaf of the plant in question and placed it next to a dandelion in the lawn. The one in the lawn is bulk standard. Got a few a bit bigger and a few a bit smaller than that example. 


Reason why there is a monster dandelion?

Here is the owner of that leaf together with its companion.....

Amazing how much 'soil improvement' has gone on against the house without me lifting a finger. Trouble is, I've inherited three 'patches' of comfrey and it's a challenge to keep it in check. Well worth growing a clump though as it's certainly improved home composting....
