Unwelcome Visitor

Discovered on site this week the stuff of nightmares - Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) also known as mare's tail. This interloper has crept in from the neighboring garden so we will not be able to completely eradicate the pernicious weed unless we can get the neighbours on side. Taking a peak over the fence revealed a small colony so I think we will have to resort to regular spraying every year as the creeping rhizomes of this weed often go down to 2m making digging out virtually impossible. See the RHS website for advice on methods of control and eradication
