looking for suggestions to control thistle weeds

Post by LearningAlot »

Right now, the thistle weeds are winning, can't seem to get ahead of them, have used roundup and digging some out,
concerned about health issues with roundup, would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

I have to control them as part of our conservation plan with the our CREP funding. They can be a pain and they can take over quickly.
Get them early when you see them sprout week wack them. do not let them go to seed.
Roundup, 2d4 are good alternatives for spot treatment, or larger areas. Just do it when the wind is not blowing. Then when your done go and shower to make sure its off you.
I have it pretty much under control to where I just go around with a sharpened garden hoe and knock them down and burn them when I see them.
good luck, do not let them go to seed.....
