Help me grow my veggies

Postby Roxietee » Wed Jun 06, 2012 9:48 am

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could give me advice, I have recently had my garden stripped of any plants and veg we inherited from the previous owner as he seems to have not cared where he put anything as there are veg mixed in with flowers, I however would like to seperate my veg garden at the back and normal garden at the front.
My problem is now that since having all the plants removed I have thousands of little shoots now sprouting, I need to get rid of them but have not got the time to remove them all 1 by 1, Is there anything I can do to kill them off and prevent them from regrowing so I do not end up with plants back in with my veg

Pull them by hand!!! Weeding is a necessary part of life if you want to garden. If you use pesticides you're just creating more problems for yourself. You're always going to have plants trying to grow where ever there is bare soil...thats just a fact of life. Honestly, and I mean no disrespect, this is simply a matter of laziness. Maybe you work long hours and don't have he energy to maintain your garden. Thats where the problem is. Try to arrange your life better so that you can have more time and energy to do things the proper way. :)

Try a glyphosphate like Roundup, then replant. Odin makes a good point - drop everything and do it his way.

Maybe the previous owner was using specific flower plantings to discourage insects.
