Re: Re: CULT: keeping down weeds

Hi Linda:
    I would imagine that East Tennessee is much like NW Arkansas, weed wise. I
nearly went nuts trying to keep my beds clean. A couple suggestions: a
pre-emergent such as PREEN (and there are others) will help a lot.
     DO NOT till deep 'cause it brings up dormant seeds and within a few days,
you will see lots of new weed seedlings.
    Mulch. . In AR I used shredded paper from the bank. It was cross-cut, fine
and worked great. I also used grass clippings. They also work great and add
organic matter to the soil.
    Here in El Paso I have few weed problems except in the cool, early spring.
Those I just hand pull. You know, put the knee pads on, turn on the radio and
start pullin'
    Hope this helps!!
