Gardeners' World - - Gardeners’ Question Time -

MATTHEW SAYS Oh dear, new-build ‘soil’ re­ally is a pain, and you may not like my ad­vice! The weeds can be mas­tered by sim­ply pulling them out – I don’t use chem­i­cals, but if you de­cide to then don’t waste your money us­ing weed­killer in win­ter as it won’t have much ef­fect. The big­ger prob­lem is the rub­ble, which could ham­per you for years. The best thing is to hire a mini-dig­ger to re­move the soil and start again with fresh ma­te­rial.
