Clearing old heathers
Hi all, and greetings from Argyll, Scotland! We’ve just moved into a1920s villa with a lovely big garden, one area has had a lot of heathers growing on it, I’ve removed the plants, but the ground itself is covered in a sort of heather moss! I’d like to renovate the bank with the aim of putting lupins in it. Does anyone have any good ideas for removing the thick mossy heathery undergrowth? I wondered about rotovating it but I think it’s too thick. I also wondered about burning it back like the farmers do on heather hillsides....hmmmm...thanks in advance, John
