They are late flowerers, if you get rid of them, what else have you got that will flower through till autumn?

Too cold at nights causes that.

It is a broadleaf weed,but they are still small. Thing is you dont want to go cutting your grass short while we have this dry spell.

We use Westland Lawn feed, weed and moss killer, its taken every dandelion, daisy, plantain etc out, lovely lawn, , they may come back later in the year, use it again, then catch them again next April.

Once again, look at the reviews on Amazon.

You need to be careful when you apply it, if it gets on your flower borders, it will damage your plants.

All is not lost, just keep at it. The colour of the lawn is fantastic, almost sea green/blue, the more you can strengthen your lawn, the better it will be.

I have used others but find Westland the best.

 just to add...I am no way connected with the Westland company, just swear by their products.

You could try a 'selective ' weed killer, kills weeds not grass. Have a look on Amazon for Verdone then look at the reviews

But at the time Mike, he said it in all seriousness, I think it was a farming prog.

Does anyone remember on a radio or tv prog, I cant quite remember, but someone was talking about laying lawn seeds, he said ' the secret of a good lay is a flat bottom' he then said,'woops,  you wont use that will you,' but they did!
