Q.Chickweed Growing in Flower Bed

Anonymous added on April 17, 2011 | Answered

I have recurring chickweed growing back in my flower bed every year and it’s taking over. What can I use to get rid of this that will not hurt my flowers when I plant them? I have tried pulling them out and digging and even rototilling the flower bed, but they still keep growing back.

After planting your flowers, apply a seed germination inhibitor, like preen. this will keep any seed started weeds from being able to grow.
