Joyce M. Coomer: Spraying only enhances target plants
By Joyce M Coomer
From what I've observed through the years, spraying of herbicides only enhances the spreading ability of plants such as these.
Apparently grasses such as fescue, which could shade out the young of plants such as henbit, chickweed, thistle and poison hemlock, do not regrow very soon after herbicide has been sprayed, but nuisance plants take full advantage of nothing to shade the ground and therefore they thrive.
I have found that a heavy application of lime (field lime, not yard lime) works extremely well for eradicating chickweed and henbit in my yard (something I really need to do this year) with the benefit of helping clover and grasses thrive.
