Oxalis is a #GardenHorror for @dkw Anyone have some advice on how to remove it from a lawn or garden bed?It’s a colour challenge this weekend featuring #black 🦇 🕷 and #orange 🎃 as we head towards Halloween. Perhaps you’ve a black succulent or some orange flowers. Or some Halloween decorations?
I too battle this demon in my garden! 😡😤😠. At first I was going to tell you to move, but I have dug out clumps of the lawn very deeply, removed all the bulbs and soil that might be infested with them and replace the grass. I did buy a "weed-b-gone" by Ortho, but have not used it yet. It is safe for lawns, and is ment to kill broadleaf plants, specifically naming "clover". #advice #lawn-weed #advice-oxalis #oxalis @djw
Perseverance and the same method used by @lovestogarden and then repeating I have reduced it after three years of digging and painstakingly removing those tiny bulbs but they are so easy to miss. 😱 So far not in my lawn only garden bed. My theory is it came with the lucern hay mulch as that isn’t heat treated but I will never know @djw #oxalis-advice #oxalis
