Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga. I am a professional gardener and I am here today to represent expertvillage.com. I am going to guide you step by step on controlling those nasty weeds that just take over your entire flower bed, your pot setting and it could be a nightmare quite frankly. Well I tend to have a routine. I check my flower beds once a week; every Saturday is my commitment. Check for those nasty weeds. If there is one, there are going to be babies every where. So what I suggest you do is loosen it up especially when it is in a pot that is already going to be loosened, loosen it up a little bit. There we go! Look at this little papa. My god, look at the roots. So by pulling the entire thing with roots, you are going to eliminate that problem. But you've got to be consistent. You know once a week have it planned that is your dedication for your plants to remove them. Now if you are the type of person oh, I don't have time, well I have a solution for you. Drive to your nearest Mama & Papa or to one of those garden centers and just get those chemicals that are necessary to kill the weeds. Follow their directions step by step, however be extremely careful because we do not want to kill our beautiful flowers. So either do it by hand or purchasing the chemicals. It's not a big deal. We are okay. What I suggest to check your plants. I have a routine every Saturday, like any weeds, a little bit of mulch. Add more mulch is not going to let the weeds take over your flower bed. Thank you and this are the steps how to control your weeds.
