Question: What weedkillers can I use in my garden?

Answer: You always want to read and follow label directions before you use any product in your garden. Once you do that, you’ll find that there are really very few weedkillers that are registered for use around existing vegetables. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they would do any harm to you or your family. It merely means that the manufacturers have not gone to the expense of proving that their products could be used around edible crops. You must always follow the labels’ directions. You can use glyphosates during the “off-season” to eliminate existing grassy weeds such as bermuda and Johnsongrass. Otherwise, mulching and cultivating should serve you well.
