As we come to the end of the dry season and welcome the rainy season in June, we can expect frequent showers of rain. Plants prefer rainwater because it is water that is chemically untreated, naturally acidic and contains traces of nitrates and organic matter.
All plants love rainwater – including weeds. Rain will not only grow your plants but grow your weeds and make them uncontrollable.
A weed can be defined as a wild plant growing where it is not wanted. It gives the cultivated plant competition by utilising water and nutrients, and even blocking out sunlight thereby limiting photosynthesis (the process by which plants make their own food).
