Weeds at the Bottom of trees

Posted: 26/05/2016 at 19:39

I have two apple trees and a plum tree on the allotment I recently took over. They are surrounded by grass, weeds and the dreaded horseradish. Is there a weed killer I can use safely  without ruining the fruit?

Thank you.

Might just try to sell a few roots.

I have tried digging out the horseradish under my apple and plum trees to no avail. Is it safe to use a weed killer (if there is one for horseradish) now or in early spring?

I have been offered a quantity of horse manure which is mixed with wood chippings and shavings rather than straw,I have been told not to use this as it takes the nitrogen from the soil to break down the wood. Is this correct please?

Identify please

 Not sure what's happening but it's upside down. Can anyone tell me the name of this plant please? It sits happily outside in a pot all year round on a south facing wall.

thanks

I guess they can stay then. I certainly wouldn't want to kill them.

Thanks Busy-Lizzie, but I think I'll let the little fellas live.
