Weeds!!! wadda you know? You turn around and there are weeds. Weeds everywhere. A little bit of cool weather and enough rain to get the soil surface wet and up they come. Have you found that weeds are excellent at hiding? One day not so long ago I realised that I was staring into the face of a Sow Thistle. Now I know I’m not that tall but a Sow Thistle as tall as me has to have been growing and hiding, hiding and growing for some time. Weeds also pop up behind my back. I weed a patch of soil, think its done, turn round and……….how could I have missed that one?
Some of my clients like me to spray their weeds with roundup but I am not very partial to its use so I use other methods of weed control in my own garden. Whether you have a little or a lot of garden it is well worth employing one or more of these methods so like me you can enjoy more time savouring your garden and less time weeding.
I hope that has given you plenty of useful ammo up your sleeves for keeping weeds at bay. Next fortnight, by popular demand, I hope to blog about plants which enjoy shade with some specifics about which of our plants will grow under Eucalyptus trees.
