Gardener's Companion to Weeds


The best ground bears weeds as well as flowers.

How true this statement is, although it could be said that the worst ground also seems to bear weeds where other plant life fails to thrive.

Weeds can be found in many home gardens, paddocks, along roadsides and even in potted plants.

They could be considered the gardener's constant companion unless you are a diligent weeder and an expert taxonomist — after all, you wouldn't want to pull out the zinnia seedlings instead of the weeds, would you?

Weeds may have their own attractive shape and structure (who could deny that the brilliant blue flower of the common morning glory isn't attractive to the eye?) but it is their growth habits and location that we need to be concerned with in most instances.

It is this factor that groups them with other plants of similar tendencies under the umbrella of 'weeds'.
