This non-selectiveacid burns weeds back to the roots. Use full strength on all types of weeds. You can increase it’s effectiveness by adding a small amount of Orange Oil to each gallon of 20% Vinegar. Add a dash of dishwashing liquid to help keep the mixture blended. Pick any sunny day and spray the crown of each weed thoroughly. In a few hours, you’ll have dead weeds!
Note: Use care when applying Horticultural Vinegar. It can harm other plants, including your lawn, if the vinegar contacts the foliage.
Use this simple recipe:
CORN GLUTEN MEAL ( 9-0-0 ) Corn gluten meal is a non-toxic alternative to traditional, chemical-based weed-and-feed products. It’s great for gardens, lawns, paths, and driveways.
As the only organic pre-emergent herbicide available, corn gluten meal also makes an excellent all-nitrogen Fertilizer.
The product works by inhibiting root formation of seeds at the time of germination. The protein in corn gluten kills the seed by drying out a seed as soon as it cracks open to sprout. Weeds germinate and form a shoot, but no root, which prevents growth.
Existing plants — including weeds — are not effected. Instead they enjoy the boost they get from the nitrogen.
Timing and coverage are crucial.....
