Flat Broad Leaf Weeds
Marshmallow, dandelion, cats ear, lambs
tongue, chickweed, plantain, fleabane and dock are
some of the common broadleaf weeds found in lawns
and home gardens. Broadleaf weeds usually have wide
leaves that often hug the ground. Active growth
varies between summer and winter weeds, and weeds
which are perennials (weeds that dont die
after one growing season) and become dormant at
certain times of the year. Examples of winter perennials
are white clover and dandelion and examples of summer
perennials are curly dock and plantain. The best
time to control winter broadleaf weeds is in autumn
and for summer broadleaf weeds is in spring. It
is important to note that it is easier to control
small, actively growing weeds than mature weeds
that are starting to produce seed.
Mowing over these weeds stimulates their growth
as its very similar to pruning your wanted
plants. The use of sulphate of ammonia, or lawn
foods which contain it, will discourage weeds, especially
broadleaf weeds and clovers. Broad leaf weeds in
lawns can be carefully spot sprayed with a general weedkiller.
