rant: oxalis is out of control!

Finally something I hate MORE than mosquitos. I cannot believe how prolific this pretty little weed is in my garden this year. It's really getting me down! Seems to pop up overnight and for the most part, it's easy to pull out but the SHEER QUANTITY is overwhelming.

I need to scream.


Ohh. That feels better!

llet me see if i can give you some help or at least some encouragement as i was in your situation last spring...i live in fl. and have st. augustine grass: oxalis occupied probably 75% of 1000 sq. ft. of my backyard...i pulled all visible weeds knowing that some roots were left behind as well as the seeds...this at least gave the grass room to start spreading...sprayed a pre-emergent(at this point, i had already pulled the emerged oxalis)...i did have to solarize about 200 sq.ft. and plug as there was no grass at all in that spot...this was very time yard looks the best it has ever sure and check the herbicide for use on your particular grass type if you should use one...good
