The next time you want to murder your weeds, why douse them with something that will remain in the soil for who knows how long? Maybe you should reach for vinegar instead. Vinegar is cheap. It’s easy to use. I keep gallons of it in my garden shed.
How to Apply: You can use a watering can, a spray bottle or a pump-sprayer to apply vinegar. I use a pump-sprayer, because it is more efficient. Be sure to rinse your sprayer after use, or metal parts (if any) can corrode.
Make your application on a warm, sunny, calm (not windy) day. Vinegar is not selective; it can potentially harm plants you wish to keep, should you accidentally spray them. As I said earlier, I use vinegar on walkways, where grass and ornamental plants are not an issue. (READ ARTICLE)
Will vinegar kill every weed in every garden? That I can not say. I only know that it has kept my pathways free of unwanted growth. (READ ARTICLE)

My new florist, Jim Bevlock of Herban Design has really outdone himself with this beautiful arrangement. He stopped by so I could see it before he delivered it (he had to pass my house anyway), and I was tempted for a minute to keep it for myself. I am quite satisfied with the thought that this has brighted the day of the person I sent it to.
If anyone is thinking of Valentines Day, I highy recommend Jim at Herban Designs, 610-353-5798.
