|I used a salt solution to kill some weeds in my garden, the problem is, everything is dying except the weeds! How can I reverse the effects of salting the garden?

|Many plants are intolerant of salt, as you have discovered. The best solution is to flood the soil repeatedly to leach out excess salts. Next time you want to kill weeds selectively, simply use boiling water (pour carefully from a teapot with a spout so you don't splash desired plants).
