Question: 385-3410
We have an invasive crop of Yarrow in the bulb patch. What can I use to get rid of them? Sheryl, Kewanee, IL

Mort's Answer:
I would hesitate to use anything. You do not want to injure the bulbs. Yarrow can be a soft tissue filler or ground cover. Since it arrives early, it will crowd out weeds. It will not interfer with the bulb crop. Bulbs have their own source of nutrient within the bulb itself. As you need the space for other plants and perennials, you can easily remove the Yarrow by hand.
