They are beautiful!
Hi there, Great tips by the way and thank
you. I did have a question though. I’m hoping you can answer it for me since you seem to be pretty
knowledgeable about gardening. How do you kill grass and weeds
without damaging plants? If you had some insight I
would greatly appreciate it.
The safest way is to dig out the roots and pull out the weeds by hand. Then add them to mulch or compost pile. However, if you are looking for a quicker option go for a homemade herbicide. Bring water to boil in a large pot and pour it over the weeds. Be careful as to not spill them over plants.
