Thistles out of lawn
Hi, I'm trying to get ahead of these little buggers before they start to grow. I don't know what kind they are, they are fairly small in size and when I use the plucker on them, the root is very long and usually only one as opposed to several. But plucking them only helps for a while, soon they come back in full force and I can't get them all.
I want to know if there is something I can put on the lawn to get rid of them. I have tried weed n feed but only applied it twice in a season, it didn't seem to help. Should I be doing it more regularily? Just when I think I have it licked, they appear in the early fall. My lawn was in pretty bad repair when I moved here, so I thought if I thickened it up the grass it would choke out the weeds, NOT!
I have done some reading, but nothing really seems to hit on just thistles.
