Break it up as much as you can, may need a good watering to soften it, add as much compost and manure as you can. Sow or plant annuals if you want something quick for this year. Next year it should then be easier, but there will always be weeds, just a part of gardening, like doing housework. 

Plant suggestion please

I would have said sedums too, fleshy leaved plants can manage better. The sort of plants that grow in walls.

Morning all. Going for a Chinese lunch today, followed by a wander around local town. Visitors go tomorrow. Then back to the weeding!

I don't freeze them, but when my son in law did, without blanching, they were inedible.

Your gardening effort haven't gone unnoticed OL, you've done amazingly well after a fairly short time and I've followed your sweet pea progress on the SP thread.

Here is a garden we visited in France on Sunday. Just one pic as it's late and I'm off to bed. May send more later.

 

Plant needed for round year interest for small border

Is it a shrub you are looking for? Is it in shade or sun, dry or damp, acid or alkali? Do you want flowers or would variegated leaves be OK? Euonymous fortunei is evergreen and comes in different varieties of leaves, gold and green, silver and green. Easy to grow.

This is what we did on Saturday with OH's BIL and his wife, floated down the Dordogne river in a boat.
