Battle the weeds – gardening must haves

Battle the weeds

We would all love a perfectly manicured garden, but this look doesn’t just pop up over night and it requires a lot of work. A funny thing is though, if you miss a week of gardening; this chore becomes a nightmare, especially if the weather conditions are helping your weeds grow.

Lately I have taken a break from attending to my garden… or at least this is how I am explaining this to myself…I was too busy, I was ill, there was a holiday on the way… all the excuses in the world… but at the end of the day I am left with a jungle of weeds and as the days are passing by they do not seem to be getting any smaller 😦

So it was finally time to get out there and start my battle. I knew that I can’t do it all on my own, I needed some help – luckily Mr. Post Man brought me some lovely parcels containing much needed aids for the task ahead of me.

new tools thanks to Easy Shed

The right tools

Thanks to those lovely people at Easy Shed I have a new selection of gardening tools. Not sure if you have something called a safe spot in your house… I do… I hide things there to keep them safe, but it has ended up on a few occasions already, when I actually needed them again they are nowhere to be found… This happened to my last 2 pruners and secateurs… eaten by a black hole… I guess they are somewhere safe with the odd socks missing from my washing every week… who knows… Any way I have new tools, which made me one step closer to achieving my gardening dream.

Resolva WeedKiller

The right product

I am armed with a bottle of Resolva WeedKiller to make my task a bit easier. Yes, it can’t be used on every weed and everywhere but there are places where I can use it… I will test it and bring you a detailed review on how the product performs in action.

Gro-sure Planting Magic

The right soil

My garden is not in the perfect spot. We do not have perfect soil, so we always need to add something to the soil to give the plants a fair chance to grow. Gro-sure Planting Magic is a perfect mixture which contains 6 months nutrients and only has to be applied once a season, handy hey?

Aftercut All in One Even Flo Spreader

The right aftercare

Aftercut All in One Even Flo Spreader is like a grass conditioner 🙂 it kills weeds and moss but at the same time is conditions and nourishes your lawn. It is the perfect final step in achieving a manicured lawn look.

Now that you all know what I have to play with, be patients and I will bring you more shortly… I want to try them all and check if they will actually do what is stated on the “tin”.

Do you have any gardening essentials I should know about?

  1. I leave all the actual gardening to the other half, I just like to plan what it’s gonna look like. 😀

    Oh you were so robbed – I thought your entry was the best one when it came to winning the shed!

    We’ll soon start to plan making a BBQ area… one of these days. 😀

  2. I had a serious accident last year, and am stil slowly recovering. The weeds have had a field day. Very envous of your new stuff. I have treated myself to a couple of new tools – it really does wonders for the motivation!

  3. yep exactly what my gardens need, full of weeds everywhere not sure theres any grass left at all tom be honest x

  4. Good luck with those pesky weeds! Sadly we don’t have a garden – just a balcony where we’re growing herbs and a few veggies…but we still manage to end up with weeds! Nightmare! Hope the products work for you 🙂 x

  5. Our garden is far away to be perfect, the weed grows faster than anything. I would like to hear more about the weedkiller, is it safe for pets too?

  6. It’s amazing how out of control a garden can get, even by leaving it a few days!! Good luck with the garden!

    I de-weeded all my garden yesterday! No mean feat 😉

    We did some gardening this weekend….the weeds had taken over the garden!! Was a mission!

  9. Good luck! We have a garden, much easier to tend! 🙂

  10. Resolva is really good – I have been attacking my garden with it – and it is just mud and weeds so we are safe to use everywhere. Good luck with your garden – we have a long way to go with ours.

  11. Our garden is really in need of TLC and I am afraid that it has been neglected recently as we have been ridiculously busy. We could definitely do with the weed killer!

  12. Dandelions are my pet hate. They never seem to go away.

  13. Good luck with tackling your weeds I need to get out and do mine soon as well 🙂 x

  14. That’s right! Don’t let the weeds stop us from gardening. 🙂

  15. Our garden is awful at the moment. All the rain at the beginning of the year hasn’t done us any favours

    This is exactly what my garden needs – that and a new lawn lol x x x

  17. I’m a terrible gardner! Tom’s mum comes every so often and plants things for us! x

    Our garden has been neglected lately. My delightful puppy has dug up most of our fruit plants so we’re waiting until she is a little less puppy-like to give it another go! You’ve got some great things for your garden 🙂

  20. That aftercut sounds like JUST the ticket for our lawn, as every time we break our backs cutting and raking it, it always looks yellow afterwards and kind of breaks our heart as we want a result after all the hard work. It also contains broad leaves, dandellions and daisies, the usual lawn offenders. We really need a product of sorts.

  21. We had all the garden decked , just got some planters to add some much needed colour into it. I hope it won’t be long before you are enjoying your garden x
