Grass suppressors

Posted: 09/07/2016 at 09:49

There are chemicals with long names that suppress plant growth but I imagine they suppress all plants not just grass. Green-keepers put it where there is only grass growing.


Gardening is a relentless process of removing what you don't want and encouraging that which you do want. The yellow rattle would die if you got rid of all the grass.


Raining again so won't be removing that which I don't want today

Red clover???

I'd rather have red clover than either of the plants you mention. Weed, apart from things like ground elder and bindweed, is a matter of opinion.

Those leaves aren't flax. they look like fat hen or similar which doesn't have flowers like that. Can you make sure the two are one. If they are, then we're wrong.


I recently spent some time convincing someone that the yellow daisy flowers coming out of the top of a hellebore were two different plants

Help with soggy soil

I think I'd start by checking the drains/water main/soakaways.


If all OK there you'll need to excavate to find how far it extends and break up or remove the clay. It will still be a hole full of water, whatever you plug it with, otherwise.
