Weed Gallery

We have good soil in Harbord Village, and weeds know it. Gardener Nicole Schulman offers advice on recognizing and dealing with common weeds. She notes:

Technically the definition of a weed is an unwanted plant, so anything can be a weed if it’s in the wrong place. That said, we generally refer to plants that are tough self-spreaders as weeds because they tend to appear where we did not put them. These are some of the most common “weeds” in our neighbourhood.
