Weeding - a forgotten skill? Discuss ....
Looking about me as I do, it appears to me that the skill of regular methodical weeding is often ignored by gardening programmes and magazines.
You really do have to keep on top of weeding to give plants the best chance to grow well.
And on this board we're often asked to identify plants which turn out to be weeds and which I would have pulled out at the two-leaf stage or before. Of course, being able to identify which are weeds and which are our seedlings or precious perennials is one of the quandries faced by new inexperienced gardeners.
Any ideas on this?
