    The presence of weeds in the garden are quite difficult to rid off. As it is necessary to eradicate, I guess these tips are useful enough to solve from encountering problems regarding weeds. Nice information!

    I've found that slugs LOVE bread. It's easy to collect them in the late evening or earlier on cooler/cloudier days. It's cheaper than beer, and the birds love the bread, too! (But watch out for the cat lurking 🙂 )

    Hi. I see baby buttercups in your video. Just hoeing them and leaving them doesn't work in damp climates. They just keep growing, extending their roots back into the soil, even though the whole plant has been pulled on top of the soil. Sorry, the only way to be rid of these tenaceous guys is to take the effort to pull them all the way up – it's tedious, but saves hours later in the season. Put on some good music, and "enjoy".

    Interesting. We uploaded a video showing how to remove bindweed. Regular weeding is essential maintenance for the garden. Preventing weeds from going to seed is important. Mulch can limit sun and water getting to weed seeds.

    Thanks for your comment Casey. It's rare to be able to eliminate weeds by hot composting in situ – usually a cubic metre of material is required for compost to heat up enough to kill annual weed seeds (see our video on composting for details). It's still worthwhile for feeding the soil and a good hotbed compost trench can sometimes help with getting earlier crops but you'll probably still need to weed by hand.

    This doesn't cover a couple that I have tried. Let me know if these have been successful for you guys, or if I just got lucky:

    1. Hot compost over winter. Putting a layer of 1-2" of fresh chicken manure on the bed in the late fall to burn off any seeds and to fertilize the bed. The areas of beds I have done this with have been easier to weed this year; however I have gotten some very virulent weeds throughout the areas. I am wondering if, like tomatoes, there are weed seeds that survive.
