Managing Weeds In Your Vegetable Garden

Markus Spiske

As the growing season gets going we hope for good conditions for our vegetable gardens and the plants in our landscape. Unfortunately those conditions are also good for weeds.

Ajay Nair and Aaron Steil join Talk of Iowa host Charity Nebbe to give listeners some advice about weed control in the garden, lawn and landscape. They also answer listener questions.
