Control Weeds in Your Garden

June 17th, 2011

Late spring is when most gardens get their first surge of weeds. I know mine has. But, there are ways to deal with these annoying unwelcome guests that will not get the best of you or your hands.
  • Carefully pull the weeds straight up
  • Mulching reduces weeds
  • For determined weeds, cut off the tops so they don’t go to seed
  • Plant shrubs and perennials closely to shade out weeds
  • Spray weeds with white vinegar and let the sun take them out
