How to Revive an Old Flower Garden (When You have a Black Thumb)?

Posted under Home gardening advice | 1 Comment

Q: We moved into an older home last summer that was owned by an elderly lady who passed away. She had a beautiful garden on the side of the house with all kinds of perenials–daylilies, irises, daffodils, tulips, daisies, etc. We were too busy with the house to do anything with it then, but now things are coming up, and we’d like to bring it back to its former glory. Trouble is, it’s overrun with weeds, and we can’t tell what’s coming up at this point. How do we clean this garden up if we can’t tell what’s weeds and what’s good stuff? Any advice would be really appreciated, thanks!

A: Most of the time weeds are smaller than the flowers that are coming up. Perennials are easier to spot because they are much thicker. Weeds are thin, at least most. I think I would just watch every few days and pay attention to the new growth coming up. Weeding is not fun, but the beauty of the flowers is amazing. Sorry not alot of help I know… =)
