My apologies for the original Show Notes for this episode. It seems like the more you hurry and try to complete something, the more things go wrong.
First a couple of announcements, and an interesting Home and Garden Show to attend if you live on the West Coast.
While it may be more Landscape and Flower centric than many of us would prefer, the San Francisco Home and Garden Show has some very interesting speakers this year. My favorites are Joe Lampl and Martin Yan of “Yan Can Cook” fame on PBS.

Today, we’re going to talk about how to reclaim a garden that has got out of control.
Listener email from Stephanie in Orlando Florida where she really had a problem. Over the winter, the weeds had taken over her garden and she wondered where to start, and how to prevent it from happening again.
I thought it might be usefull to discuss what I recommended and how it went.
As I discuss on the show, and as you can see in the photos above and below, Stephanie really had her work cut out for her.
But what a great job she and her husband did not only in recovering the garden, but improving it so they won’t need to repeat the process.
- Removed Weeds
- Landscape Fabric
- Rocks instead of wood Mulch ( allows Flame Weed treatments)
- Sides on Raised beds
- Cedar Posts for Wires to act as a Trellis
Super Weeds created by Monsanto now a recognized problem for Agriculture
