Weed control - Knowledgebase Question

Kingston, Ne
Question by phc5151

Before I planted my vegetable garden, I used Weed Prevent, but I'm still getting weeds. Should I use it again? Someone told me it really worked in their garden, so why isn't it working in mine? Or would using Round-Up be better to use?

Thanking you, I am

I'm not sure why your Weed Prevent pre emergent did not work for you. Round Up is a vegetation killer so using it around desireable plants isn't a good idea. You can smother the weeds with a thick mulch. Compost, folded newspapers or even cardboard over the bare soil will stop weed seeds from germinating and will smother existing weeds. Best wishes with your garden!
