Why promote RoundUp?
I was appalled to read an expert's response that included the use of RoundUp. Do your research. Just because the product is still sold in stores doesn't mean it is safe. Gardening must include respect for our natural world, our Earth. RoundUp is an incredibly dangerous product, for humans, beasts, and beneficial and necessary insects. You don't have to poo-poo RoundUp, just avoid writing about it.
