Clearing the weeds (and backcombing grass)

1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Southwark.

Jo made her way to meet Ms J who needed some weeding and other light gardening done.

Jo enjoyed the sunshine and found time flew by and by the one bed was fully cleared of weeds, and the lawn mown. One poor tuft of oranamental black grass had become so entwined with creeping weeds that it required a backcomb with a fork before it could be repotted safely a away from intruders. The little mermaid would be proud of this use of a dinglehopper.

Ms J was very pleased with the difference a couple of hours made.
