Sand Garden – Will Willow take over my world?

It is an important source of nectar for pollen, but self-seeds can be easily and problematic weeds.

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), which specializes in fruits and vegetables, says: And who would dare to say such wise words to such an August official?

“Roses can be a troublesome weed,” says the association. No, I, Rossay Willower, produces a lot of soft seeds that can be easily carried in the wind.

Today, in mid-August, a light southwest wind blows an ice shower around the area where silk grows everywhere in my garden.

They lie on the grass in front of you like a fine spray of snowflakes; They were tied to the curtains and piled on the front door.

My garden was separated from the Railway Bank by a solid stone wall, started in 1842. This wall is good for blocking experiments with long, twigs and rhubarb roots to expand their territory by establishing major new repairs to the plant. .

But a strong stone wall is of no use in the invasion of these natural paratroopers.

Roseby Willow is a native annual throughout the United Kingdom and in northern Europe and much of the Northern Hemisphere. It is growing rapidly and will soon reach a height of 1.5 meters – say, five feet in old money.

It boasts deep pink-purple flowers in the long peaks from June to September. And these flowers ripen into tall seed caps that are open to release soft seeds. It is one of the first plants to reappear in wildfires, and Americans and Canadians know it as a weed. (There will be more next year!)

It was known as the Bombing of British Cities. The leaves can be eaten at an early age, but their attraction is easier than taste. In parts of Alaska, Aboriginal people treat bites or wounds by placing raw thorns on their wounds.

The rosary willow is an important source of food for many moths and butterflies. It is also an important source of nectar for pollen, including bees. It grows in neglected areas such as dirt, scraping, stone, wood, etc., but on the contrary, when it has the opportunity, it enjoys growing in gardens.

A.D. In a 2016 article in Business Insider, Ulf Buntgen and Nicole de Cosmo argued that the Mongols had spent many years raining to stop the European invasion.

Their study “shows even the slightest variability in climate change.” Only a few degrees to change the course of history. Amen to that.

But will Robbie’s willow worm stop taking over the world?
