Weeds are the scourge of the garden and every gardener from amateur to professional has an ongoing battle with the humble weed! It is best to get on top of them as soon as you can as they can quickly become unruly and over run the garden.
There are some things to do to prevent weeds from being able to grow in the first place – for example, many allotment owners will cover the bare earth with an old piece of carpet to stop weeds germinating there.
If that ship has sailed and you have already got an abundant weed population in your garden here are a few tips for getting rid of them
