Too wet to spray for weeds?

by Malachy - Horticulturist CountryLife Dungarvan | Jul 15, 2016

Too wet to spray for weeds?
With this wet weather we have been having over the past few weeks I have gotten a good few questions from customers who are worried about weeds getting out of control and not being able to spray them with weedkiller. What I do in my own garden if I can’t spray weeds for few weeks is take my strimmer to them and cut them down to ground level. This gets me more time to spray them when the weather gets better. The most important thing is to cut down the weeds before they flower and produce seed heads.
