new orchard

mary o mara asked 11 years ago

We made a new orchard in the spring – planting 28 apple trees; I scattered wild flowers around the area it looks lovely; The problem i have now is very strong dock leaves and coarse grass; The wild flowers are still in flower; Is there any way i can get rid of the weeds and not damage the apple trees ;

Keep the grass down around the trees with old carpet or by using Roundup.

Cut the weeds and wild flowers down with a brushcutter.
