Christine Brown did not engage with her followers. It’s probably for the best since it led to an unlikely debate in the comments section. One fan wrote, “There is a tv gardener over here in the UK and he said there is no such thing as a weed, it’s just a flower growing in the wrong place.” A second fan chimed in and confirmed that “100% a gardener said something like that too here in Western Australia lol.”

A third one wrote: “The difference between a weed and a plant is an opinion.” Another one of Christine’s followers said that they “feel this way about dandelions.” She revealed that it’s “an unpopular opinion” in their country. This led to another debate about whether dandelions are roots or weeds.

One argued that dandelions should be associated “with death because their roots can grow 10 feet deep!” Then that user noted that they are “one of the first sources of food for bees in spring.” Another chimed in and added that dandelions are “lovely wildflowers and not a weed.” As for the debate whether morning glories are weeds or flowers, one user explained that the ones in the photos “are just weeds.”

According to her, “Morning glories are beautiful flowers that open in the morning and close at night.” This led another to wonder if they can also be classified as a bush, but one noted that their grandmother “grew them as a vine with a trellis.” What are your thoughts? Do you think Morning Glories is a weed or flower? Sound off below in the comments.
