i have plenty of couch grass in my borders,if i put some yellow rattle seeds in the grass will it grow and kill it? i have heard yellow rattle is parasitic to grass.

any help will be gratefully recieved

I once went to a vineyard in Norfolk and they told us that they used yellow rattle to keep out the couch grass, I thin it stops it spreading.

Worth a try but I'd weed the big plants out first and use the yellow rattle to weaken the inevitable new ones that come.  I too have couch grass rampaging about no matter ho well I weed my borders so may well give the rattle a try.

Good idea.
