I decided last week, that against my better judgement the only way to sort the shameful front garden was to nuke it all with spray weed killer, and start from fresh. Felt very bad about it, as as far as I know my dad, who's a good and decent sort of chap and gardener has never used chemicals. All our vegetables and fruit from the garden were naturally organic and lovely.
Then L, Mr Unorganic came over, his advice was to weed kill it with a spray. He told me that he used to multi task having a fag in his Chiswick garden with a quick spray of the weeds on his patio. This idea was reinfored in my head when I read a gardening book which said weedkill, weedkill, weedkill.
We got all ready to do the deed, but then it kept raining. After the rain stopped I looked again at the garden, it had turned in to a really lovely wild meadow of a front garden, with white daisies, poppies, bluebells, white blue bells and other things I can't name. It looks lovely, even with the weeds. So now I just can't do it, and instead resorted to the old fashioned way yesterday of just pulling out weeds that I could identify.

And any ideas on what to do next, i.e. how to get rid of all the grass/weeds without killing the flowers please?
