Our talk, "The Art, Skill and Science of Pruning" is proving popular with garden clubs leading to one on weeding.
It's a task that all gardeners do on a regular basis and yet one that is written about infrequently in glossy garden magazines and picture-perfect garden books.
Yet, why not speak about, get to know the "enemy" and, are weeds really the enemy anyway? As a horticulturist weeds have given me a job!. When I put on my other hat as a bush regenerator I rely on a multitude of methods to eradicate rampant weeds from our forests. Sometimes I even take advantage of weed-like plants to "boldly go" where no other plant will grow!
Maybe it is time that the "w" word came out of the garden shed - "The Art, Skill and Science of Weeding".....coming soon!
