Ask a Pro: Treating Weeds without Killing the Flowers -

Q: There are weeds in my flowerbed and I would like to know how to eliminate them, without killing my beautiful flowers. Can you help?

-Lisa T.

A. Best is to lay newspaper around the plants, covering the weeds. 7 layers of newspaper covered with 3 inches of mulch will get rid of the weeds for 2­ to 3 years! It’s really that easy.
