Wrong. They are called White Clover. It is one of the most common types of clover in the UK.

And you call yourself a horticulture student. If that's true, then I'm the Queen of Sheba.

Are you retarded? Anyone who spends a day outside knows it's white clover, but to horticulturists of any nature, THOSE ARE WEEDS.

I help manage four greenhouses. Do you know how ******* long it takes to pull those out of every single ******* pot without damaging the original plant (we don't use herbicides for obvious reasons)? And they always grow back.

By definition, a weed is an unprofitable, troublesome, or noxious growth which is not meant to be in the area which it occupies. A tomato plant could be considered a weed if it was growing in an Easter Lilly pot.

I have been told they were weeds by some, but it is also called "white clover", so in my mind that's a clover. I live in Pennsylvania, by the way. My college has huge parts of its lawn almost entirely made up of these. It's great for the soil because of all nitrogen fixing it does. The plant can also grow is rough soil conditions. To me, that's not a weed, that's just makes my lawn look and stay green where grass couldn't normally grow.

So the terms weed and clover are exclusive?
What if I planted it, could I call it a clover then?

Animal Management Student here- If those are not clovers, then I have possibly been ******* if the animals when told to feed them "clovers" and assuming those weeds were clovers.

It's sarcasm. A weed is any plant not wanted and to a horticultural student, a clover is nothing more than a weed.

I sometimes wonder why we can't just get all the animal management kids to weed clover out of our greenhouses for us... win-win.

Kids? Okay, I'll weed you greenhouses, you can feed our invertabrates.
Just out of interest, which college do you do horticulture at?
