Natural Gardening

Natural weed removal

I'm not an expert gardener by any means, but I try various things I read about and see what works for me. My delight at finding a natural weed removal has led me to share it with many friends and neighbors. All of them have been very pleased at the excellent results, and the low cost. No more visits to gardening centers, and no smelly chemicals. But my son does comment on the mild temporary odor.

When I first read about it, I picked a corner of my driveway that was a constant problem. It was close to the garden, and ants trailed through there frequently. I poured it in, enought to wet the soil, but not overflow onto the pavement after removing the big weed stalks. The roots are so hard to get to and unless they are killed off, no matter how many times you pull them out, they keep on coming back. For over 6 months the area remained weed free, yeah, I was thrilled it worked. One of my neighbors says she owes me big time for cutting her gardening bill in half, and keeping her driveway weed free.

What is this wonder product??? You probably have a quart bottle of it in your kitchen, if you do any amount of cooking on a regular basis. Time to go out to the grocery store and buy a gallon of white distilled vinegar. That's right, this simple common household product has worked wonders for me. I hope you also try it, and let me know how it's worked for you. I read another gardening column, one person uses it with an eyedropper to selectively get to the roots of weeds in more difficult places. Since it kills roots of growing plants, use with caution near plants you want to keep growing. I only use it in my driveway, and on my patio when the weeds begin to grow in the cracks in inappropriate places.
