horsetail weeds

Mix 6 parts water 1 part ammonium sulphamate and overspray. If only a small amount of the weed then nip off the tops place a small funnel over and spray each one individually...this way you can still plant non edible plants.

Horsetail - can I nip it in the bud?

Ammonium Sulphamate (check it out on Wikipedia) can be purchased in granular form and mix 6 to 1 with water and spray. If it is just a few stems pushing through then nip off the end and put a small funnel over so as not to spray the soil.  If its a large area then just overspray and dont grow anything else there for a while (i think its about 4 months) It definately kills horsetail and other tough weeds.
