hi just in from weeding and thinning my hands are all aglow with nettle stings and the odd thistle. Think my preferance is for the thistle as they only hurt briefly. I still don't know whats in my big scatter and sow beds apart from grass thistles and nettles but there looks to be 100's of poppys almost ready to burst in to colour.
Its an awkward bed its about 5-6 feet wide and how do you go about weeding and thinning out without trampling all the plants?
I have considered blasing a trail down the middle so i can get in and weed and thin. Is there a better way?
well time for a coffee and let the burning subside any suggestions for weeding and thinning greatfully received
