Program Description

At the suburban garden Roger Swain talks about weeding and pest control. He emphasized getting to weeds before they go to seeda nd being sure to take the time to get out the roots of any tuberous weeds, like dandelion and nut sedge. When using an oscillating hoe he recommends weeding after watering so that you don't water the weeds back in. Use a 2-3" layer of mulch to keep weeds from starting.(see more tips in folder with 1900 info) In Swarthmore, PA, Holly Shimizu tours the garden of Charles Cresson whose family has lived on the same property since 1883.
