Our approach to a small garden with a lot of invasive weeds.
Before we started work Oct 2019
Small garden beds back on to a wild area. We want it to look tidy for as long as possible but some of these weeds are pretty aggressive.

During and after our work
Comfrey has many benefits. Get the sterile one, Symphytum Officinale (common comfrey), which is propagated by the root, not seeds. The tap root goes deep into the soil to bring up the nutrients for nearby plants. Plant it under your fruit trees with a wild flower mix that attracts beneficial insects.
You can also soak the leaves in water for a health tonic for your plants.
The plants below are going in a client's orchard this week.
A small garden in a sunny spot that we keep looking its best by propagating and letting desired plants self-seed making it very cost-effective.

What a joy to add more to this sunny garden.
