Broom wars

Filed under: Gardening,Nature watch,Views — Jocko @ 4:36 pm

Is it just me or does it appear that the battle against broom is making some headway. I know there are people who are working hard to control this aggressive invader. My neighbour says cutting it off at the ground can be pretty effective in killing it and a lot easier than trying to dig it out of rocky ground. It’s just about finished blooming now (mid June), and therefore better hurry to cut or pull before seeds are set and disseminated. Composting is better than burning the harvested plants.
