I agree with both of these, but I think I, too, give bindweed the final vote.digitS' said:Yeah, I've heard it's nasty.nittygrittydirtdigger said:Tackweed, goat head, punctureweed.....
But, for me - it's bindweed, also. It takes repeat sprayings. Or, "sifting" the soil to get the roots out.
Never let it get past its 1st year!
If you leave it the least window of opportunity, bindweed will crawl thru or out from under mulch.
I thought I was the ONLY ONE with that problem!!patandchickens said:3) grass in the flowerbeds. In a way, this is my worst weed because it is the only one that, one, you NEED to keep going after and going after and going after (otherwise the bed turns into lawn) but, two, there is no hope of ever keeping it out for long, so it is guaranteed to be a permanent battle. The best I can say is that, the better my garden soil gets, the easier it is to pull the darn stuff out.
