What is a weed?
Salt wheat, milk thistle, dandelion, goat tube… weed list is endless. All plants have their own place and function in nature, but the exact gardener thinks the weeds are obviously unnecessary, or at least annoying.
Indeed, weeds are plants that grow in the wrong place in the opinion of the gardener.
Weeds thrive under certain conditions, as do other plants. Some enjoy dry, dense soil, others thrive in a nutritious, moist or even acidic medium.
So weeds tell us about the nutrient status of the soil. For example, a yard track is usually found growing in places where the soil is condensed, poor in nutrients.
The dandelion, on the other hand, actually grows anywhere, a horse herb in an acidic soil. Thus, we can also deduce from the existence of weeds things about the composition of the land.
Bouquet of weeds: Get inspired and try
Look at weeds in a new way. An upright essence, a solid stem, a bright floral color, a graceful inflorescence or a lush flower can inspire a home florist.
Gather the weeds you like to decorate the bouquets and stills, preferably in the morning, when the liquid tension of the plant is at its best.
You can also water the weeds, cut the suction surfaces on the stems and let the stems absorb water properly, for example overnight. Also remove the lowest leaves from the flower stalks so that the leaves under water do not get dirty with water.
