I have had my garden for less than a year and did not really take any note of what was growing in the grass when I bought the flat last summer. I just hacked it back as it was very long, 3 foot and more is some places. I then dug out several flower beds. This year I have discovered that I have horsetail growing in my garden. I have never come across it before and was in total ignorance so you can imagine my dismay coming back home this week after two weeks away to find out it has taken over the garden.
It grows in abundance in the forests in Vancouver.
I think it is worse than bindweed as the roots are the same colour as the earth so any useful tips on how to get rid of it would be very welcome. I do appreciate that I may have a long battle ahead of me.
