Hi Pat,

'Sunflowers' (among others) I think are recognised for their
talent at extracting certain radioisotopes or transuranial
elements from soils burdonded with such...

'Cat Tails' too, if memory serve, as for more marshy places.

Is it Chynerbol ( sp?) as has planted so many of them 'near'
? are right! - would maybe make for something
interesting in the way of variant Ash Glazes.

From: "Pat Southwood"Have you heard of people using ash for
glazes made from photo-remediators? They are the plants that
are grown on polluted soils specifically to "clean" them.
They apparently pick up the metals from the soil so they
should give interesting results.
I am going to ask the lord of the manor if he uses any so I
can try them.
Best Wishes,
