At one stage it had taken over the whole yard, and has been so difficult to get rid of. I noticed when I was watering yesterday there are a few little out breaks of it, so today I am going to treat it with my home made weed killer.
I got the "recipe" from Colin Campbell on ABC's Gardening Australia, wasn't he an absolute gem of man! Missed by all.
This weed killer is made from simple White Vinegar and Common Salt. Two very cheap ingredient which you mix together and either spray on or apply with a small paint brush. I opt for the small paint brush as I have more control over where the weed killer goes. This is not a herbicide and it will kill any plant it touches, so be careful.
To one litre of white vinegar
Add one cup of cheapest cooking salt
MethodAdd salt and vinegar to a plastic bottle, screw on lid and shake to dissolve salt. I use a 2 litre vinegar bottle and usually have one or two spare to decant one litre of vinegar into.
You don't dilute this mixture, just use it straight. You can use it in a spray bottle but I find you have more control over it if you paint it on the weeds.
This is the culprit
So, over to you, what homemade remedy, do you use in the garden, that works like a charm?
