Re-seeding: how do you know its not a weed?
So.............Having spent the last couple of months only thinking about gardening and reading in this forum, I am now out there weeding and planting!.
Every time I read "these re-seed themselves beautifully" - I think "hmmmm, why doesnt anything re-seed in my garden?"
Well yesterday I spent all day in my front bed, weeding, moving things around, and planting a few seedlings, and realized that I am such a voracious weeder in the spring, that its possible that things do re-seed, and I just pull them all up!.
So please tell me - how can you distinguish the desired volunteers from the undesired? I grew Nigella last year. It is supposed to re-seed, but that area in the bed is all turned over and replanted now. Should I be only pulling things I can identify?
Your advice is appreciated.
