Q.What can I use to kill all weeds in a flower bed that I’m going to replant in the spring?

Zone 64052--zone 4/5 | suelee added on October 18, 2019 | Answered

I had been unable to tend my flower bed for 3 years (health problems). It was completely overgrown with weeds, of course. A friend cleared it for me, tearing out all the weeds, roots & all (we thought). Now, little ‘weedettes’ are reappearing.
I’d like to know what I could use to kill the weeds until I replant this flower bed in the spring.
Thank You,
