Last year i made a retaining wall in my backyard. It is right below a woodsy area so there is always seeds being left from trees and squirrels. I did use lots of mulch but that didn't seem to help.
How do i get rid of the weeds inbetween my flowers without killing the plants.

You can use a product such as Over The Top by Fertilome or Amaze by Green Light. Applied according to label directions it should not damage your perennials. Once you've gotten the weeds out you might want to use weed blocking fabric over the bare soil and cover that will mulch, or use a corn gluten meal pre emergent such as Preen which will keep seeds from germinating. Best wishes with your garden.
