I have just read this
I'd reccommend using newspaper instead. Most modern newspapers use a soy based ink that is biodegradable, so it won't hurt your soil, you can check with the newspaper to make sure they use this ink. Just weed eat like you planned. Put down 6-8 layers of news paper (not the ads or the shiny pages, just the regular parts that have the news), get it really wet with a hose, weigh it down with either the rocks you're planning on or mulch and then plant right through it. Keep in mind that even landscape fabric is not perfect, and grass IS going to grow through it. This will happen with the newspaper as well, but the cool thing is that next year, it will have degraded into mulch, and will look just like the dirt underneath. Whereas the landscape fabric will still be there, but full of holes so pretty much useless. And it doesn't add anything to your soil, unlike newspaper.
I'm going to try it hope to works as it will be much cheaper

Hi all how do I know when you potatoes are ready to pull only they are in a tub in the green house and are now about 1ft tall and are starting to flower, so do I wait for the flower or pull them now ? I only put 2 potatoes in the pot but have about 6 - 7 shoots from then and they are all flowering.
