  • Cool season weeds waiting in the wings

    If you are one of those who complains about weeds like it’s the end of the world then take note: The most common, cool-season annual and perennial weeds will be germinating any day now.  
    The obvious: They are easy to control if you just bend over and pull them up; or walk around the garden with a cultivator in hand, scratching up a patch here and there; or spot treat them with boiling water, in order to scald the foliage and roots; or use a conventional herbicide to easily knock them out while they are still young and tender.
