Nasty, Seed-Shooting Weed -- What is it?
My perennial garden has been overrun with a weed I have never seen before. I fear that it came in with some mulch or with a something I recently planted. See pix -- it is the most rapidly spreading monster I have ever seen and when I pull it out, it shoots horrible little seeds straight into my eyes.
I have patiently pulled every one of the evil things out bu he roots (it took about 36 hours) but my beautiful beds are now full of those nasty seeds. I have two questions:
1. What is the name of the weed?
2. What's the best way to get rid of all the seeds that are now in my garden? I am not adverse to chemicals.
Thank you in advance!
