Weed infestation in lawn

Our lawn has become infested with prunella vulgaris (self heal). It has got well beyond the point of being able to control by hand weeding. I am searching for the appropriate chemical product to eradicate this pest. Will Weed and Feed do the job? Or does it require a more nuclear option.

Answer: Hi Graham.

Thanks for your enquiry.

Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding. We have been overwhelmed with a huge number of queries over recent weeks and we’re trying to answer everyone as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience.

Yates Weed’n’Feed Granular will control this weed. If the weeds have grown tall, it would be a good idea to mow it all down first (this will also help remove any flowers), leave it for a week and then apply. Applying herbicide onto small low growing weeds is much easier.

You may need repeated applications if the weeds are well established and also in coming years if there are weed seeds in the soil.

I hope you’re able to get your Prunella under control.

Kind regards,

Angie
