The time for weeding is general during the Waning Moon, the closer to the New Moon, the better.
Ideally start early, February/March to get your garden in a good shape. The more time you take to prepare your garden, the easier it will be to keep in check during the year.

Usually, you may weed another few times in June and very sparingly over the summer. That should usually suffice.

Here are few other tips:

  1. Use a lot of compost. Weeds need sunlight to grow. If you deny it and keep them ‘earthed up’, they won’t grow. Here is an article that shows you how to compost
  2. If you need to weed, use the right day and ideally just after it rained. Wet soil releases weeds much easier then bone dry ones.
  3. When some poke their heads through the soil, cut off the tops and again add compost to cover them.
  4. In dry times, water your plants, but try to leave your weeds off.
  1. Let sleeping weeds lie. Kill weeds at their roots but leave the soil—and dormant weed seeds—largely undisturbed. …
  2. Mulchmulchmulch. Don’t give weeds the chance to see the light. …
  3. Weed when the weeding’s good. …
  4. Lop off their heads. …
  5. Mind the gaps between plants. …
  6. Water the plants you want, not the weeds you’ve got.
