Weed Control

Our first choice for weed control is always mechanical whether this be hand weeding, hoeing or using a mulch to smother out weeds. However, this is not possible in all situations and we occasionally use herbicides of low toxicity as a tool to help manage the Garden. This is most often applied to pernicious weeds such as bindweed, Japanese knotweed or thistles, which are difficult to control otherwise. An annual herbicide treatment helps keeps gravel paths clear of weeds.
