 Mind your own business, baby’s tears or helxine is a tricky weed in lawns not too far from the coast.

It is more or less immune to weedkillers, and comes back from seeds in the soil.

Apply lawn sand or sulphate of iron which are used as mosskillers, and feed the lawn in spring and summer to encourage more vigorous growth to out-compete the weed.
