Control your weeds

When carrying out the recent plot inspections, it became apparent that a number of plots now have thistles, nettles, docks and other perenial weeds growing on them. 

These weeds are not just a menace on the affected plots but will quickly spread to adjacent plots if allowed to grow unchecked.

Please note it is a requirement under the rules of the Association that every plotholder is required to keep weeds under control and every effort must be taken to remove them before they set seed.

In a rural situation such as ours it is impossible to eradicate weeds entirely and indeed many of the play an imporatant role as food plants for birds and pollinators, but on cultivated plots they are not welcome.
