Answer: It is usually a good idea to remove weeds promptly from container plantings. The soil space is limited and the weeds will steal moisture and nutrients from your desired plants. If they are larger growing, deeper rooting, perennial weeds they will eventually compete with your plants. By then, it will be very difficult to remove them because the roots systems will be intermingled in the container. To prevent weeds you can mulch the soil surface.
