This Month’s Tips: Natural Weed Killers

Don’t let weeds mar your summer garden.
Instead of resorting to harmful chemicals, try some natural, inexpensive remedies to keep weeds at bay.
Bob Vila offers nine ideas, including:
1. Vinegar. Spray vinegar on weeds on a windless day to avoid spreading the natural herbicide to other plants. Sun activates the killing properties.
2. Table salt. Put a pinch of salt at the base of each weed. Avoid getting it on other plants.
3. Corn meal. Sprinkle corn meal to keep weed seeds from germinating.
