Answer: Since the weeds are only just starting to appear, now's the time to take control. Pull them up before they set seed then put down a weed barrier - either the kind you purchase in sheets or rolls, or use 4-5 layers of newspaper on top of the bare soil. Weed barriers will exclude light, which will keep weed seeds from sprouting. After you've installed the weed barrier, cover it with an attractive mulch material - bark chips or decorative rock are good choices. Once you've done this, your garden should be weed free for years to come and you can enjoy your roses and other flowers.
Best wishes with your garden!
