Talkback: Weed of the year 2008
Well I'm new to allotmenteering this year and I'm loving it. The weeds were 5 feet high when we took over the plot in July, but we've managed to clear most of them now. The worst were probably the bindweed with their brittle white roots which break at the slightest provocation. I've also got a small clover-like weed which seems to cling to the asparagus crowns. It has a reddish coloured leaf and is difficult to remove without digging up the asparagus as well. Any ideas? Also, am I the first person in the world to confuse asparagus roots with bindweed roots? I did find them difficult to tell apart at first but I'm learning.
