Anyone who wants to have a garden that is always beautiful and well-kept must remember that weeds grow inexorably and continuously. Some of these are weeds and invasive, for this reason it is best to proceed in a certain way.


Beautiful, fragrant and tidy gardens that are invaded by all types of weeds. Even if you don’t have a developed green thumb, it becomes imperative to recognize a certain type of weed and remove it completely in the correct way. Let’s find out how?

Gardens, because weeds appear and multiply

It’s wonderful to have a garden that beautifies the house, small or large. A small corner of paradise full of different colors and scents, where you can relax or sunbathe.

There is no shortage of weeds that vainly and completely ruin these green surfaces, affecting the flowers and making the garden unlivable . We often find ourselves faced with milk thistle or laurel up to dandelion: even if they have colorful flowers, it would be a good idea to control their growth and eliminate them immediately.

Pull weeds

Gardeners , in fact, consider these weeds as weeds for vegetable gardens and gardens with high-level reproductive capacity as well as dangerous for the health of children and pets if ingested.

Weeds in gardens: what to do with this invasive type

As mentioned, there are various types of weeds from the most invasive to the dangerous ones. Purslane is a plant that grows spontaneously in gardens and vegetable gardens, offering many healthy properties for the human body.

Garden weeds

Not everyone knows that the leaves of this plant offer a good supply of Omega 3 which are essential for combating inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases . Furthermore, they improve blood circulation and reduce the level of bad cholesterol. So, don’t you dare tear them off!

To give a practical example, 100 grams of purslane leaves – oleracea variety – contain 350mg of Omega3 fatty acids despite all other sources of plant origin. The sativa type is grown very easily and is often found in some gardens.

Not to forget its rich supply of Vitamin A – B –C-E as well as beta-carotene.

We assess the situation? Not all weeds are harmful to the garden, in fact purslane is excellent because it is edible and known for centuries for its healing qualities. In ancient Egypt they made extensive use of this plant, and then passed the tradition on to the Arab cultures who taught its use throughout the Mediterranean.

Portulaca beneficial plant

Traditional medicine has always taken it into consideration to counteract the itching of insect bites as well as treat intestinal disorders. It is eaten raw or cooked in addition to salads and soups, remembering that it has the same effect as chemical herbicides for the soil (when it grows it means that the garden is polluted).

Before consuming it, always ask your doctor for advice .
