Alan Titchmarsh shows you how to weed between your plants to keep your borders tidy and reduce competition. With minimum effort and using just a hand trowel, he demonstrates the best way to tackle different types of weeds, including tap-rooted perennials such as thistles, and shallow-rooted annuals such as speedwell.
