Woody-stemmed weeds and Herbaceous weeds

Woody-stemmed weeds

Woody-stemmed weeds are common in neglected gardens, which go unnoticed for a long time. The most typical are sycamore and elderberry. Oaks, ash trees, sharp-edged, chestnut trees and yew trees also appear quite unexpectedly. In many gardens, especially near the forest, blackberries become at home, whose seeds are carried by birds. Even attractive climbers, such as jasmine, capryfolium, especially ivy, in abandoned gardens they can turn into weeds, which will outgrow and choke other plants.

Herbaceous weeds

Field horsetail is one of the most troublesome herbaceous weeds (Equisetum arvense), which can master large surfaces. If we find him in our garden, it probably also visits the neighbors' gardens. if so, joint efforts to remove horsetail. It's worth taking care of that too, so that in our garden the goblet would not settle down (Calystegia of hedges) and morning glory (A convolvulus of the garden) – are extremely clever colonizers on a large scale.

Japanese knotweed is another bane of gardeners, mainly on moist soils, on which it forms dense thickets. The ground elderberry (Aegopodium gotagraria), field thistle (Cirsium arvense), white light (Lamium album), called white nettle, and common nettle (Stinging nettle) – they are also willing household members of moist fertile soils. Fortunately, we can deal with them effectively, regularly weeding their places of occurrence.

Spring lesser celandine (Ranunculus would stay) and butterbur (Pelasi-test fmgrans) at first they may seem like quite attractive plants. Unfortunately, we'll find out soon enough, that they are extremely expansive weeds.

It should not be forgotten, that also many herbaceous plants grown in the garden, as soon as they get out of hand, they will begin to spread like weeds, outgrowing and drowning out other plants. These include such herbs, like lemon balm, mint, comfrey or creeping bugle. On the other hand, we keep horseradish in check in our vegetable garden (Cochlearia armoracia), which once settled, it stays almost forever.
