We tend our garden, we love seeing our flowers bloom.
Wow! It is amazing, but it seems those weeds grow faster than our beautiful flowers!
Here are a couple of tips for effective weeding:
- Do not break the weeds at the ground level. There are roots attached and it will grow back. You need to remove the roots. I find a weeding tool works great for me. It allows you to get to the end of the root and pop it out.
- Do not let your weeds go to seed. If you have this happen, you will only have many more weeds than you did before.
- If you use a hoe or a cultivator, (below) you will need to do this at least once a week. If you use these tools near roots of your flowers, you have to be very careful. I find it much better to pull the weeds that are close to the roots by hand.
