- Our County Extension Office very reasonably (IMHO) defines a "weed" as any plant that's growing where you don't want it to. All plants have a purpose. It's Nature's way. I have many lovely "weeds" in my garden and plan for them in my annual picture. If for any reason certain ones don't come up, I go out and collect seed to make sure I have them next year (never had to so far!).
