Q.Kill Sandburs in the Garden

Zone WESTERN NEBRASKA | scootinne added on April 3, 2014 | Answered

What can I use to kill sandburs that won’t harm what I have planted for my vegetable garden? My garden is approx. 30′ x 15′ and I grow tomatoes, green peppers, squash and other veggies. I have not planted anything yet but will be tilling the garden in a few weeks, and hope to plant in early May.

Thank you,

Scott Graham
