Flowers that are stronger than weeds?
I just spent 3 days weeding out an area where the weeds just seem to have been growing and growing.
Ideally I would like to try and sow some flowers here hoping that some time next year the flowers will kind of stop some of the weeds growing. However weeds are really strong and hardy so I suspect they will just keep on taking over.
Does anyone know of any kind of flower that is also strong and hardy and may be able to stop some of the weeds growing - as well as providing some spring summer colour instead of a green mess?
I am in England, so the climate is temperate and normally wet. The area for planting doesn´t appear to be that great soil wise. There were a few worms in there, but some of it seems to be mixed with small stones, brick, and I think a few inches down there may be clay. Is there any hope of flowers? Thanks again.
Day temperature is around 12-15c at the moment so hoping to sow before it gets too late and maybe cools down too much. The area will be in morning shade and sun (when and if it does come out) would be in the afternoon from approx 1.30pm-7pm.
