Thank you for inviting me to speak a few weeks ago to your garden club. One person asked me how to handle Galinsoga. I am familiar with this weed, but more used to calling it common chickweed. If this weed is in flower beds, I think the best solution is to carefully weed it out and not let it go to seed. In the garden, we use an action hoe and disturb the seedlings just following germination when they are very small. This is very effective if you keep up with hoeing every 7 to 10 days.
