Weeds are wild plants in the wrong place. They may have benefits for wildlife in your garden, but if you want to get rid of them, check first how they grow and spread.
Annual weeds produce lots of seeds; hoe them off before they flower. See our guide on how to control weeds without chemicals.
The Royal Horticultural Society is the UK’s leading gardening charity. We aim to enrich everyone’s life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
