Maggie: Farmers Wife Day By Day
This week what I noticed when I was weeding in the garden is the invasion of violets - they are everywhere! In the garden where they are crowding out other on purposed planted plants, they are in the lawn, making Mr Man a little ticked (I'll say no more about that).
While I think the flowers are really delicate & pretty, their roots are very deep & so to remove you have to really dig down & gently pull so you get all the root, otherwise you just get the plant growing again. I know who gave me the original Mother plant & really she was an experienced gardener giving to a novice,me, she should have told me how invasion these little darlings are.
