    Use newspaper

    I'd dig the whole bed up first, pulling out the exposed weeds, then do as Iris suggested, using newspaper as a weed deterrent. Don't be stingy with the newspaper. Put down several layers and cover with mulch.

    Dig up as many weeds as you can first.Laying newspapers on top of them will smother them,however the energy in the soil will go to the weeds and not the plants.Use a heavy landscape fabric,cut Xs where you want to plant.Once that is complete put newspapers and follow with mulch.
