Weeds among the trees
While it's great to see plants grow during the long days, it's shocking to see how weeds can be so aggressive in my shelter belt.
I could not believe how quickly after spraying, that the tenacious ferns, brambles and grass forced their way and now challenge the yourg lines I planted in March to fill the gaps in between the more established trees.
Getting a shelter belt established is a real challenge, fighting the elenemts as well as the heavily populated hedgerows that are bountiful with wilf flora.
