We have a patch of buttercups in the back garden that I left because they covered up the soil quite nicely and looked good. However, I wanted them gone as that spot by the wall is perfect for beans/peas and I was claiming it back.
You can see they they spread out over the driveway a bit - they also spread through that plant on the right! They grow by putting out runners (like strawberries) and that means they are buggers to get out of the ground! And although their roots are fairy shallow they are strong! It took me and hour and a half to clear that patch!!
Ta da! It looks much better now and will be put to good use although not this year!
I also tied up the honeysuckle (I think it's honeysuckle anyway!) It had fallen onto the top of the bin and is much happier in it's new home. It also means I don't get wet through every time I need to put a black bag in the bin!
