#385: How to Permanently Destroy Weeds Invading Your Garden

In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#385: How to Permanently Destroy Weeds Invading Your Garden In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with award winning author Teri Chace about how you can take steps to permanently destroy weeds and invasive plants wreaking havoc in your garden.

Teri is going to give us the background on invasive plants and weeds, where they come from, why you still get them even if you use a weed barrier and why they thrive in areas where your vegetables struggle.

From there, she'll give us some common varieties that you will come across and why just simply spraying or pulling won't solve your weed problem. That you need to study thoroughly, everything about the weed species you are dealing with.

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
