Wet newspapers and put layers around the plants overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspaper. Good composting!

  • Lenea Martel

    I've done this before --- you have to put more than just one layer of paper... you need to put the ENTIRE section down - like the A section, then overlap it with the B section, etc. Just one page of newspaper and the grass will grow through... believe me!

  • Nancy Eldredge

    Thanks for sharing your comments about the paper thickness.

  • MamaChick

    I've done it too. Definitely need a whole section.

  • Sandra Sain

Clever! The next time you have green onions (scallions), don't throw away the white ends. Simply submerge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely. We just use kitchen scissors to cut what we need for meals. I periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.
