Mistye,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you. I assume you mean a vegetable garden. Give the fruiting vegetables and those that produced edible roots in the most sun you can and put leafy vegetables in the less sunny spots. The best way to get rid of weeds is to grow a dense healthy turf through proper mowing, watering and fertilizing. Your local Home Depot has weed control products available but these products are not a replacement for a good turf care program.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
