Digging out the snowberries

Our group of volunteers is currently clearing designated areas in the South border in order to prepare for bulb planting, in October hopefully.

We are pulling out the snowberry shrub, an incredibly invasive plant, which propagates through lateral roots up to 1 meter long. Very difficult and thankless task! The plant seems to grow back as quickly as it is pulled out.
