    Logan (if I can call you that)  Yes there are many weeds around and you have to decide what to dump BUT to me your soil looks gorgeous. Wish I had thatimage

    I'd do systematic weeding. the bittercress, willowherb, euphorbia and buttercup for a start

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • My soil is the result of many hours of blood sweat and tears, many bags of compost and topsoil, and a few bags of horse dung! It was terrible before (but at least it was weed free!!)
  • I'm feeling mixed responses about removing the euphorbia... Who's for removing it all?

    Can anyone point out the bitter cress and willow herb so I'm sure what to remove?
  • Why are these weeds following the drifts that I've sown my annuals in?

    Because you've disturbed the soil and they've seized their opportunityimage

    That just an annual weed LH, sunspurge is its common name. I'd have it out or there'll be thousands next year

    15.52,  pic 2 and 4 are willowherbs

    13.52   pic 2, there are 2 willowherbs on the left

    Bittercress is in the 2nd pic of the first set of pictures. White flowers divided leaves.

    They'll be with your sowings because they came to the surface when you disturbed the soil

    Loganberry: Was the horse dung well rotted down, eg produced last year? The longer rotting process kills any weeds ingested by the horse.

    If not you may have imported your weeds with the dung

  • Birdy... It wasn't well rotted at all. Just a few months image lesson learned big time!
  • Ok... I pulled the bitter cress earlier, along with the shepherds purse and butter cup. That just leaves the euphorbia and the willow herb.

    Oh. And a huge couch grass infestation!
