Weeds and Critters
Ok, what’s messing with my roses, and why can’t we get rid of these dorky, over-bearing weeds?
It’s garden maintenance season. It seems like you close your eyes for a second and some opportunistic critter or weed takes over. Anybody got any ideas on how to stop whatever’s putting teensy holes in our rose leaves, or taking huge chomps out of them? It must be two different critters. See the pictures I posted under Questions.
Then there’s the little wild violets….the violets are gone now, but the plants have covered what was the lawn in the middle of our back garden, and are now busily encroaching garden space. Also, the nasty viny stuff I took a picture of with my husband holding a piece(you can see it listed under the Questions section here on Grows on You. ..what is it…and how do you get rid of them and the violets??? Help!!
And while I’m searching for answers and complaining….why did my Jacob’s Ladder die? We just planted it in the spring, and it was beautiful, then one day we woke up and went out and it was near dead – and now is completely dead. The roots seemed to turn into root powder!! What gives??
Oh well, part of the gardening experience that always frustrates me. Guess you gotta take the good with the bad!
