Weeds in the Walkway

    Listen 00:52:57

    Brick walkways are great–if you’re a weed looking for a place to live! On this week’s You Bet Your Garden, host Mike McGrath will reveal how to turn this problem into an opportunity. Plus an inside look at this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show.

    Question of the Week:

    I’ve been searching for a responsible way to keep my very large brick terrace free of weeds. (I will not use Roundup.) All the advice I can find is about weeds in garden beds or lawns, not growing up between bricks. I tried pulling the weeds out by hand after a good rain but they keep returning.
