The Q&A Archives: Weed around begonias

Question: I'm having problems with weed around the annuals and those are beautifull. I concern about the flowers if I use any kind of weed and feed. What do you recommend?

Answer: I wouldn't recommend using weed and feed around annuals. They are too tender for such harsh chemicals. I'm afraid you will have to pull out the weeds, roots and all and then cover over the bare soil with 2-3 inches of mulch. The mulch will help stop weed seeds from germinating and your bed should remain weed free for the rest of the season. Enjoy your garden!
