I am new to gardening. I have always had houseplants and started a small container garden last year. Finally we bought a house with a suitable plot for a decent veggie garden. Im not sure where to start though.
We bought the house from an elderly woman that once had a flower bed in the back. It was neglected for years and someone put cardboard over it to control the weeds. We removed the cardboard last fall to see what we were working with and, lo and behold, it is a mess! There were lillies coming though the cardboard, literally hundreds. We removed as many as we could but there were still more. There are saplings coming up, some with 3" trunks. There was also honeysuckle that had taken over the forsythia(sp?) bushes that line one edge. I just don't know what I need to do to get this under control. I was told I needed to till it all but I have read that isnt always best and I am afraid of further spreading those remaining Lillies.
I really want to start my garden this year but Im not sure that will happen. TIA
