Wipe Out Weeds

With the weather being so warm and wet plants are growing like crazy. Sadly, so are their weed competitors. Pre-emergent controls you applied earlier may be wearing out sooner due to the weather conditions. Scout for weeds regularly and remove them promptly before they have a chance to spread or go to seed. Weeds can successfully out-compete our cultivated plants for space, water, and nutrients due to their unique genetic make-up. This makes them a nuisance in our gardens, if not an outright danger to our prized plants. Be careful when using Roundup not to get it on anything you don’t wish to be killed. There is a microfine mist beyond the visible cone you can see with your eyes when spraying and even it is lethal to any plants contacted. I found this out the hard way when plants died I thought I hadn’t sprayed. – ‘Plant Doctor’ Bob
