Canada Thistle in Home Landscapes

First Paragraph:
Home gardeners know that weeds can quickly overtake and destroy the beauty of their yard and garden. But more importantly, weeds rob the soil of nutrients and choke out the roots of desired garden plantings. Dealing with weeds quickly, before they have a chance to get a deep hold in the garden is the best defense. One of the most troublesome weeds for homeowners in landscape beds is Canada thistle.
