Unwelcome guest

Alfalfa pellets are a popular inexpensive organic fertilizer. Because the roots of the alfalfa plant grow deep into the ground the plant (allegedly) is a valuable source of trace minerals, as well as nitrogen. All I know is my roses love the stuff. But I was not expecting the bumper crop of alfalfa that has sprung up around my Golden Wings heirloom shrub rose, and which threatens to choke it out if I don't get in there and do something about it soon. And because the roots of the alfalfa plant grow deep into the ground. . .ugh.

We have done the same thing with alfalfa, but I didn't remember it growing. It was one of those unpleasant experiences I probably blanked out!

Not good that especially as it roots deeply! Best get it out as soon as you can.

That does not sound good ... I hope you've been able to get rid of the alfalfa. It's too bad when something that should be a good thing turns out to be a nuisance.
