Once again I feel inspired to set myself up as a professional garden clearer.
I am highly qualified and I base all my work on three simple rules.
1. If a plant has deep roots it's a weed.
2. If it has shallow roots it's almost definitely a weed.
3. Anything in between, I don't take chances but assume it's a weed.
These three little rules have stood me in good stead in the main - although I may, this afternoon, have inadvertently destroyed the solitary lupin and snapdragon in our garden that looked as though they might flower. But you wouldn't have been able to see them anyway with all the weeds.
