Been looking up grasses because I'm sure that 2 rapidly growing grasses in the veggie garden are grown here for dairy cattle, probably in my horses' hay. Got out another barrow load this morning.
This is what I found about the one I identified, scary, "Ability to spread: C. dactylon spreads rapidly by rhizomes and stolons, and also by seed. It can spread over 2 m/month during the growing season, a single plant forming a dense sward up to 25 m across in 2.5 years.
Weed potential: It is difficult to eradicate with chemicals or cultivation, and can become a serious weed in cultivated land. Declared weed in over 80 countries"
The other grass I have is bigger and worse, may be a type of sorghum;
