Q.My wildflower meadow has been overtaken by weeds

Planted a wildflower and grass meadow in spring which has already been overtaken by weeds. Used glyphosate prior to planting to prep ground but all grown back with a bang!

Unfortunately, this will have to be a purely preventative effort. Once you get weeds established in the wildflower bed, it will be impossible to get rid of them. They grow under the same conditions, but better.

Maintenance will have to be done by hand. Pulling anything unwanted before it goes to seed.
