sussex, United Kingdom
we have just been offered an allotment site which is shoulder high with brambles, thistle and dock. we intend strimming the top growth and dividing the area into two areas. the first area we will attempt to dig before winter and the second half cover with horticultural matting to be worked on as and when. will the matting be effective as a weed supressant given the time of year or should we spray the area with a herbicide first( not keen on this but the site is about 200m squared).
