I`ve got a bit of a problem with twitch (couch grass to you) coming through from the cemetery next door. Not a major hassle I just sigh and dig it out again.
However, I put a really thick layer of compost on my asparagus bed in Autumn and when the usual shoots of twitch started showing last week I went to try to get rid before the asparagus puts serious growth on.
And what do you think?
The twitch has just colonised the compost, making it really easy to simply pull it out, growing tips and all!
This is probably old hat to you experts but I found it really exciting!
I know - I should get out more.
