Another hated thing in my garden which just needs a little muscle and time to destroy. Let's stop promoting herbicides (which are contaminating our groundwater) and start putting a little energy in to killing these bastards! Again, just a photo of something that I hate.
When nasty weeds pop up, don't reach for the weed killer. Douse them with vinegar, lemon juice or boiling water instead. The weeds will likely shrivel in a day or so. Resilient ones rarely withstand a second treatment. (Vinegar, lemon and baking soda are miracle workers!)
Why Use Roundup? Make Your Own Weed Killer Note: spray on the plant, it will kill anything tender that it touches. If it gets in the soil, the salt in it will prevent anything from growing for a few months to several years, depending on how much was used.
