Last week, I began my garden product guide series with information on garden soils, amendments and fertilizers.
This week, I’ll begin to cover some of the many options available for weed control, pest control and fungicides.
Just as intimidating to most gardeners as the selection of fertilizers, soils and soil amendments, pest control and weed control shelves at the garden center are a frightening place to those who aren’t sure what to buy.
Bottles, jugs, jars and packages line the shelves, filled with products promising to help control gardeners’ biggest problems and woes.
You’ll find multiple products claiming to repel or keep out deer, rabbits, moles, chipmunks, squirrels and more. Dozens of products that claim to eliminate insect pests, caterpillars, beetles, aphids, ants and other crawling creatures.
You’ll also find dozens of products that claim to work on fungal diseases, blossom end rot, blight, black spot and more.
