Tackling weeds in your garden 

Helpful, friendly advice on tackling those pesky weeds!

One area at a time

Tackle one area at a time. Once a day or once a week for however long you have, it will get the job done! Carry a bucket round with you to put the weeds in.

Next time you see a weed in your garden, stop what you are doing and remove the seed head. You may not have time to dig out the root, but you will stop it from spreading.

Using weed control

There is a variety of different weedkillers available to suit your needs. Weedkillers are developed to avoid weeds taking over your garden and deprive your plants of water, space, light and nutrients. Weedkillers for home gardening follow strict development guidelines and gardeners will find clear instructions on the packaging of where, what and how to use the product which should be followed. 

Lastly, give yourself time to relax

Weeds will always be around and you need to accept that. Instead of focusing on tackling weeds all the time, focus on your amazing garden and what you have achieved.
