Weed Identification and Clearance

The nursery/veg plot has been neglected for a while and a large collection of very tall weeds have overtaken the area. Not deterred by this, the gardeners took it, as not only a challenge, but an opportunity to teach our new apprentice, Callum, a spot of weed identification.

By the end of the session, potatoes, onions, parsnips, carrots, beans, courgettes and squash had all been found and the weeds removed from around them.

The weed identication was also successful, Fat-hen, Speedwell, Groundsel and Shepherd's Purse all learnt, will leave the Cleavers, Willowherbs, Nipplewort, Bindweed and Ground Elder for tomorrow's session.
