killing weeds

what to use to kill weeds in flower gardens ?
Submitted by anitaclewell5

Hi, Well once the weeds are up and growing, the only real way to handle them is by hoeing or hand pulling. You can use a product called PREEN when you plant your garden because it's a pre-emergent that will prevent weed seeds from sprouting, but once the weeds are up and growing, hand control is probably the most effective and then mulching right away to prevent them from coming back.

Preen and the mulch work so well. Preen doesn't hert you flowers. Yes, weeding first, apply Preen and a good layer of mulch. I love it.
