glyphosate has helped and once the new lawn is down then hopefully it will get suppressed, until then glphosate has and always be my best mate lol

a quick google brings up a well known supermarket selling it arrgghhhh


Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup - so that should be fine.

Also, the plants won't have much chance to flower in your lawn, provided you mow it often.

Good luck!

I can assure you that spurge is very persistent! I have two types in my garden and one at the plot (probably transported from my garden!), sun spurge pulls out easily and that is all I do with it. That is enough to keep it under control. Petty spurge has a fragile tap  root and it  can be difficult to get the whole thing out without it breaking, fortunately the taproot is not too long, so as long as you use a daisy grubber rather than just hand pulling you will get the root. The seeds explode from their little seed pods, so never let them go to seed, but the seed can remain viable for many, many years (gardenorganic suggests that seeds from archeological digs may germinate after 20- 100 years!). So, if the seeds are there in the soil you are likely to have a persistent problem however much you do to remove what you can see! But I have really never felt the need for the use of chemicals, it is easily removed if you just pull them up as you see them. :)

I have looked where I can post this and will be blowed if I can find it again.

I saw a place on here somewhere with photos of weeds.  I have this one all over my garden and lawn, lawn not a problem as it is made up of couch grass and I am slowly taking the grass off.  Seems every time I take this blessed weed out loads come in it's place.

I just hope I have loaded it properly.

Looks like creeping buttercup - little devil if it is!
Regenerates from the tiniest bit of root left behind.

The thread for this is in 'Grow your Own'  :) :)

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Thanks for putting it where it should be.

It's not buttercup, I have some of that.  This thing has a single root about two inches long and thin.

I have got three pics here, two are of the same plant/weed.  The green one I am not sure, is it foxglove or comfrey or none of them, hope some one can tell me, thanks.

ps:  hope it is ok to post back to back on here.

Absolutely fine to post back, though I don't know the answers!
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Sparkyrog.  The tall plant it what I call sailors buttons, it's tall and has just finished flowering, small yellow round flowers like sailors buttons.  It's the broad leaf plant I am trying to find out.  Thanks all the same.
