The Nursery Plot

Ali and Joe have spent the last two days working on the nursery plot. Having cut down all the untidy stems of the annual and perennial flowers grown for Simon's wedding, their next task is to fork over and weed. A big problem is the perennial weed, Bindweed, which is not easy to eradicate and however much we have tried, still persists, twining itself around plants in the summer and smothering them. Its roots are white in colour and very brittle, the smallest amount left in the soil will regenerate and grow again. The plot is now ready for the bamboo cane wigwams for the Sweet Peas in the summer, and we hope, a little or no Bindweed.
