Weeding the garden the easy way

If your garden seems a little overgrown and all you want to do is get rid of the weeds with as little effort as possible: you can, but don't reach for the normal weedkiller. All you need is neat vinegar, a spray bottle and a good sunny day. 

Head out and spray the weeds until soaked with neat vinegar in the morning and then just leave them for half a day. They should shrivel up in the sunshine. While you are waiting for the vinegar to work its magic you can plonk yourself in a deck chair with a good book and a glass of something delicious. 

Note: this is a great method to clear driveways and paths of winter weeds. if you are going to do the in flowerbeds, take care not to get the vinegar onto plants you want to keep. And remember the bees will thank you for not using harsh chemicals. #weedwithfood
