  • Dig out weeds after a good rain.  The roots will become slippery and you can remove the entire weed root much more easily (and prevent the weed growing back again!)


  • Areas with a lot of weeds:  place black plastic over the area and anchor down the plastic.  Leave for at least 2 weeks. Remove plastic, soak the area with water and dig out weeds to get the entire root.


  • Use row covers for first month after seedlings are planted.  This will lessen weed growth and pests interrupting plant growth in your bed until the seedlings are stronger.
