How to get rid of wild violet weeds?
Let me know how it comes out. I have since bought 8 oz of
Weed Free Zone from VPG highly recommended by my garden center. I did not see triclopyr in the indgredients, but is a combination of 4 different killers including 2-4 D Amine. He said to be sure to "mist" it with a thickener, however am going to use a hose sprayer at 2.0 for now, the listed weeds it covers includes violet. It says to apply at least 4 hours before it may rain, so will feel safe if no rain for at least 12 hrs here in Michigan.
I disassembled my 25 cent garage sale bargain Ortho sprayer, & found a bunch of crystalized junk inside, so was no bargain, the last owner never flushed it out after use, so am going to buy a new one.
I was probably spraying water on it last year, is why it didnt take, the leaf edges would start to yellow, & then come back.
In any case, am going to keep my eyes open for the triclopyr, (I beleive that used to be available to only liscensed contractors), but is now available to the public. Regards, Bob
