Hand Weeding The Broadwalk Borders
Ali and Crystal spent the morning carefully hand weeding the Broadwalk borders. The weed, Veronica hederifolia, Ivy-leaved speedwell, had spread throughout the borders nestling amongst the hellebore, snowdrops, aconites, iris, cyclamen and primrose even disguising itself as an aconite or hellebore seedling. Unable to use a hoe each weed had to be hand picked, a slow and painstaking process.
