My Dad got some soil from a farm (manure + soil), but it's full of weeds. He wants to plant flowers. What can he use to kill the weeds, but without killing the plants? Name something we can buy or make. Thank you very much.

I would try composting the manure/soil. The heat from composting will usually kill any weed seeds that may be in it.
