Working with nature is like a dance - certain things need to be done at certain times to get the best benefit.
I think of soursobs - oxalis. If you don't know the dance, they come back every year.
You get annoyed in winter and pull them out and they're clear for a week. Or if you know the dance, you spray - once - when they're in full flower and just receding. But then you never have soursobs again. It takes knowledge, nerve, patience and a willingness to act when required.
But if you dance right, you get the result. If you don't get the result, you read the signs wrong.
