Devloping a green thumb

Ive noticed my strawberries have sprouted a green weed. Does anyone have any advice on how to turn the sprouted green weed to a yummy strawberry? Also any other gardening advice for Maragolds and other flowers that are easy?

  • You cant turn a weed into a strawberry plant. Pluck the weeds when they are small or they will choke out the plants you do want. Marigolds kinda take care of themselves. But after they flower and the flower starts to die, snip them off as thats where the seeds are for next years Marigolds. When flowers die snip off the flower top to encourage new flowers to grow all summer.

  • I am not the best with flowers, still have a lot to learn, I usually go with easy keepers like impatiens, petunias, and vinca.
