War on Dandelions

02 May 2009 19:30:28

Is it just me or is anyone else plagued with Dandelions this year. My heart is broken with them.Spent ages today going around with a big knife digging them out but they just seem to be multiplying before my eyes!!

The best part of my day today was spent in the garden centre. It was my best friends birthday yesterday and because she has started gardening and cooking in the last year so I decided to make her a herb garden.Bought every herb we could find in the garden centre and spent the evening planting them up into big pots and troughs. They look so cool!!!! She has a big big garden. I spend my time trying to talk her into putting in a herb garden and veggie bed. Maybe this pressie will persuade her!!

They do seem bigger, I think. The dandelion flowers even seem to be surviving the lawnmower!

Well done, Monica. Hopefully you will have converted another person to take up proper gardening. Not just entertaining in the garden, the way young people want to do these days.

And yea! Verdone definitely works, I wouldn't be without it.
