Why Don't Weeds Die??

Post by Andee » Tue Jul 16, 2013 8:01 am

There is a patch of land next to our garden, which is over grown with weeds. Every now and then I will go out and cut the weeds back with the strimmer to try and control them. Hoping that this will stop them invading our garden. So far this has been succesful.

The puzzling question I have is. During this heat wave, I have had to continually water the garden to keep our plants alive and stop them wilting. But the weeds and overgrowth on this land show no signs of suffering and are greener than all the gardens around. Why don't weeds seem to suffer in the heat?

On another note, fortunately our lawn is green and hasn't suffered. This been due to the kids pond and spilt water (The kids do come in useful sometimes).
