I am clearing almost solid bindweed, nettles and brambles to make a perfume garden. The patch I did about a month ago(forking as i cannot dig and pulling out all roots i could) is now covered in new weed plants again so I have had to once more extricate every little root before i plant up. so far wallflowers and agastaches have been put into "clean "soil but I will be watching for fresh weeds all through the winter and spring. I find after a long lifetime of gardening the physical way is the best and getting your hands in the soil is very satisfying.
