Dan's Garden: June 27

Posted: Updated:

Weeds are a problem in any garden, but there are steps you can take to deal with them.

Couple other ways that you can do this, is you could put down a black polly like this six mill black polly. It'll hold the moisture in, keep the plants cooler, keep the weeds from coming, and I think it'll even make the plants grow faster.

Some people just use newspapers like this. They hold it down with clots of dirt or rocks or they use these six inch staples you can poke in the ground. Or they'll just use paper or seed sacks, or another good way to block weeds is to use this landscape fabric cause it lets the water through, and blocks the weeds.

Our plant for the week is Japanese try lilac, and this is a beauty. They bloom for about another month. it's a little tree, only gets about 20 to 25 feet high, and they're great color.
