Tip of the Week: Boiling Down Weeds
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! This week, we’re giving you a very simple, and very organic way to take care of those pesky weeds in your garden! Weeding can take a whole lot of time out of your day, and because of that, many companies have come up with a wide array of pesticides to help kill your weeds while saving your time.  However, these products can leave residual chemicals behind, altering how the plants you put in the ground afterwards grow.  To counter this, while saving your time with weeding, there is another, equally ingenious way to weed. All you need is some boiling water, a bucket, and some boots.  Simply pour the boiling water onto the patch of weeds, and that it is.  The water will kill any plant growth it touches instantly, and then you are free to turn the soil, and allow those now-dead weeds to decompose and fertilize the soil. Now, we have to be clear here: this method will kill any and ALL plant growth that it touches.  Weed or beautiful flower, the result will be the same.  Therefore, this method is best reserved for when you have a large patch of weeds without anything else near it.  Should you use this in close proximity to other plants, you run the risk of getting them in the crossfire, or when the water seeps into the dirt. For more gardening tips and tricks, be sure to check back to our page every Monday for our latest edition of Tip of the Week! For now, we say “So long!”
