best way to get rid of grass/weeds from a vegie patch? Ours is huge, so hand weeding's not really an option

120m2 and I would rather not use lots of chemicals. No matter how much I weed, they all just keep coming back. I've actually had to mow it as it's just getting so overgrown!! Thanks heaps!!

Answer: Hi Gaye,

I know how annoying it can be when the weeds invade your vege garden. They too seem to thrive in the freshly tilled soil, much to our horror.

Mulching is the best way to stop weeds from appearing in your garden. Covering the earth with either sugar cane mulch or lucerne hay will certainly stop the weeds from growing. You will need to top up the mulch from time to time to keep a adequate covering on the soil.

You can use a Yates product called Zero Weedspray which will get rid of these annoying weeds. You will need to be careful that no spray comes in contact with your vegetables. The best way of applying this product is with the Zero Weeding Brush. The Zero Glyphosate is simply brushed onto the weeds by means of a dabbing and brushing action eliminating any chance of contact with the vegetables.

Good luck and enjoy growing your own veges.
