There is a lot of weeding to do in the garden all year around, especially after we have put small plants in. Or the California poppies, other annual seeds in the soil, and wind-sown grass just compete with them. We have two ‘bare earth beds’ that we will be sowing with perennial meadows soon. We are trying seeds called Super Pollinator this year. They are the last of the annual meadow beds and mean we shouldn’t need to re-sow now each year, which is much more sustainable and will take less work too.
