Weeds and Weed Growth
Melcourt Topsoil Blended Loam is derived from prime arable soils which can contain annual weed seeds. Natural fertility within the soil will encourage good plant and weed growth, particularly during warm, wet weather. The control of weeds is particularly important during the early stage of weed seeding growth – otherwise they will grow and compete with planted material. Any weeds, particularly Fat Hen can easily be removed by hand, by hoeing or chemical spraying. Alternatively the use of a bark mulch will considerably reduce the germination of any weed seeds.
