Oh dear me, I'm struggling!
I am in the midst of my hands and knees journey through my woodland garden to root out the villains and am overwhelmed by the enormous number of seedlings appearing.
If I start too early when the seeds have just germinated, to my untutored eye they all look the same, just two tiny leaves, so I leave it a bit until the tiny plants have developed a bit further, but I still find I can't identify most of them.
What I need, I think, is some sort of pocket reference to weeds in the early stages of their development that I can refer to as I crawl about with my nose 6" above the ground. In time, I suppose I could produce my own guide, but at the grand old age of 80, time is not on my side.
Any thoughts you lovely people have on the subject would be really welcome.
