Meadow weeds

Una Grant asked 12 years ago
A flower meadow has been sowed 2 years ago. This year we only had one type of flower (daisy). The worst problem is perenniall weeds. How can we eradicate them?

If there are a lot of perennial weeds such as docks, ragwort and thistles, the ground is too fertile for a wild flower meadow.

These can only be taken out by hand. Try managing the area as a wildflower lawn, mowing every two to four weeks and removing the cut grass everytime. The perennial weeds will be reduced.

It is important to distinguish between a wild flower meadow and a wild flower lawn.
