Controlling weeds (or trying to!) is an important job in the garden and can be achieved in various different ways depending on how they grow.
Not only does a weed-free garden look neat and tidy but weeds can often compete with your plants for water, nutrients and light and, if left unattended, can smother your favourite flowers and veggies.
Try to remove as many as possible so they do not grow into mature weeds that are harder to remove. A wiggle hoe is a really useful tool for this job as it can carefully work between plants with as little disturbance as possible. Choose a dry day to do this job, so the roots dry out on the surface and do not re-root.
…& finally for large areas of weeds!
Don’t be put off by larger patches of weeds in your garden. It can seem over-whelming but a good place to start is simply by cutting them back to ground level. Over time this will weaken and even kill weeds.
