Q: Is Roundup safe for gardens?
A: Roundup is considered safe for use in gardens as long as the directions are carefully followed. It can be used to treat the ground before planting, followed by a three-day wait before putting plants in the ground. This is because Roundup kills any plant it touches, but it breaks down quickly in the ground.
Q: Is pressure-treated wood safe for vegetable gardens?
A: Pressure-treated wood that was produced after 2003 is safe for vegetable gardens. Pressure-treated wood that was produced before 2003 contains what is now a known carcinogen, chromated copper arsenate (CCA), which was applied back then as a treatment. Alkaline copper quaternary (ACQ) or copper azole (CA-B) are safer and are applied to pressure-treated wood today.
Q: Are worms good for gardens?
A: Worms are very good for gardens. While tunneling through soil, worms eat decaying matter and excrete it as usable soil. The tunneling process aerates soil so it can drain and plant roots can spread out more easily. Additionally, worms neutralize the pH levels of soil and make it more fertile for growing a garden.
