Section clearing & re-planting continuing
Oct 30, 2008
Author: Lance - Hamilton

Last year we cleared the aluminium weed from the whole corner of this part of the garden

and planted hostas and fuchsias. However over the back on the boundary some

has grown back.

The next job on our list is to clear the tradescantia, convolvulus and a small amount of wild ginger from the side boundary.

We intend to plant camellias to keep the light down and make the tradescantia coming from the neighbour's place easier to clear. After digging out the ginger I was amazed at how big the root system was.

To contain the weeds coming from the neighbour's place, I've had to build a fence.
