These garden nasties come up and through some of my cherished plants, making weed spraying a tricky business - especially the glyphosate sensitive roses.
When I first started gardening here, over 16 years ago, we had virtually no onion weed. My biggest mistake was letting my chooks free range. Always sounds good doesn't it, chooks skutting about? Wrong! Apart from forever exposing the roots of my veggies and every other tree and shrub, they happily spread the onion weed far and wide. The have their own yard now, and I have a garden full of onion weeds!
