Help wanted

Can anyone in the Melbourne area help a reader who needs plants of the weed known as Cobblers Pegs, Farmers’ Friend, or Black Jack, for medicinal purposes?
This common, widespread weed (Bidens pilosa), with its spiky seeds that attach themselves to gardeners’ clothing, has a long history of use in complementary medicine. This lady requires the plants to make tea from the leaves. She does not drive and is having trouble finding them locally.
If you can help, please contact me by email or comment, and I will forward her email address.
