Vinegar as an organic weed killer
« on: May 22, 2010, 08:28:48 PM »
Hello David. Ive used Coles white vinegar in a pump up pressure spray bottle to kill weeds with reasonable success on the easy to kill weeds. Have you or others used vinegar? Any comments, what brand/type. Ive some marshmallows to get rid of.
Also have some strawberry & alow vera plants to give away - Womma Rd Penfield - now to mid June - ring 0403 582 280 for details. Regards, Barry

Hi Barry

I have not used vinegar on marshmallow. I think it might work on the small young plants but expect that a large plant would lose its leaves but survive. Like yourself I have used a cheap vinegar on softer weeds.

I don't know a source of stronger vinegar, would be interested to know about it if you find something at a reasonable price.

Well, I vinegar is Organic Weed Killers. It t may still harm your other plants if it comes into contact with them. To prevent this from happening, you can consider applying the vinegar  by means of a sweep.

Oh no, Gary, you must not be around anymore  Three days have passed since you said you would post pictures "tomorrow" if you were still around

I am wondering if using stronger vinegar would work, I also have 10 and 20 vinegar for killing plants.
