salt will kill them alright. it will also remain in the soil - it does not decompose - and kill anything else. jeyes fluid will also render the soil sterile. the earth is our mother in many different ways, treat her with respect, do not damage her.
Derek's right . Salt really isn't the solution.
The short answer is Yes.............it can be pretty corrosive so you should take care where you apply it
young leaves yummy in salad
elbow grease is the answer that im sure no-one wants to hear i just dig the soil around them as deep as possible and pull them up manually. no chemicals used, and i find it therapeutic holding a near foot long piece of root in my hand! nothing satisfies more than a bit of good old fashioned hard work
I love Dandelions! I try and let them just do their thing! when they establish well they get such huge sunny yellow flowers! I don't understand why people dislike them so much!
I feed the leaves to my tortoises. I find that after routinely picking all the leaves off the same plant time and again has weakend those growing in the lawn (as they havn't been able to produce their own food) and naturally 'killed off' the tap root. No digging, no chemicals, no dandilions in the lawn!
