Save work, time and money by changing the way you think about the weeds under your fruit treees to discover their many wonderful uses.

Contrary to popular belief, weeds are often doing more good than harm, and many of the plants we think of as weeds are also herbs that were once used routinely for cooking and making natural remedies.

Weeds are also nature’s healers, and are astoundingly good for the soil under your fruit trees when used as a living mulch.
