‘Largest ever’ cannabis plant found in Weston garden

THE LARGEST cannabis plant ever found by Avon and Somerset Constabulary was seized from a property in Weston yesterday (Thurs).

The record plant scaled a six-foot fence in the garden of a property in Brue Close on the Bournville estate.

Officers raided two neighbouring homes and found the plant along with cannabis bud, weapons, weighing scales and cash.

Two men were arrested, one from each property.

Inside one house, there was cannabis bud drying next to radiators and on a clothes airer.

Weapons including a baseball bat, two sets of scales and cash were also seized from the house and a 49-year-old man was arrested.

Neighbourhood beat manager Andy Vallender said: “While we obviously had information to prompt us going to the houses, we did not expect to find anything like the size of plants and quantity of cannabis.

“People need to understand that cultivating cannabis is against the law and we will act on any information we get about people growing it.

“When you consider the other things seized from one property – the scales, the money, the weapons – you can see it is not a harmless pastime.”

Anyone with information on cannabis production is asked to police on 101.

Think You Have the Biggest Cannabis Tree? Show Us!

Fun fact: Cannabis can grow from a tiny seed to a 15-foot-tall tree in a single year — and those trees are coming down this month as part of harvest season.

Each tree might yield three to five pounds of dried cured cannabis, worth maybe $5,000 total.

More than the money growers make on big trees, there’s also bragging rights. Every cannabis farmer claims to be the best, and like a traditional county fair — THE biggest tree is one way to rank skill.

Maximizing Low Plant Count

Big cannabis trees are also perfect for personal growers—who often face legal plant counts limiting crop size.

For example, in California under Proposition 64—adults 21 and older can grow up to six mature plants per property. Depending on size, a six-plant harvest might fill a Ziploc freezer baggie, or a hefty garbage bag. It all comes down to plant size.

Beyond growing cannabis for commercial or personal gain — there’s the sheer eye-popping joy of checking out big cannabis plants.
