Re: Weed control

Zone 5 and hostas are up all over the place.  Look close+ACE-  Sometimes they
are hard to see when they first start up because many pips are very dark

I use roundup selectively but would never consider doing what you are
talking about.

I have pulled lots of grass and weeds in new hosta beds and it is lots of
work, just get them when you can get roots and all and don't let anything go
to seed.  Disturbing the soil will bring more weed seed to the surface so
that is why I do not work the soil in a hosta bed after it is completed
except to plant more hosta.
