Why am I seeing so many weeds in my beds so early this year?
Those are winter annuals that started growing last fall from seed. Henbit, chickweed and hairy bittercress; the goal for control – get rid of them before they flower and set seed. Simply pull them out. Once they flower and seed, they are set to start growing again next fall. If that’s the case, next fall, apply a pre emergent herbicide in those beds to help stop the seeds from growing in the fall.
