Q.

Removing Chickweed from our lawn

Zone Colfax, NC 27235 | hendrix628@msn.com added on April 28, 2015 | Answered

We have a large area of chickweed as a result of some bad topsoil that was purchased. At this late date in April, it is about too late to spray the area, then wait 3 to 4 weeks before we can reseed. I read that chickweed can only be killed by spraying during the growing season. Is this correct? I was hoping to spray the area in August and then reseed in early September. Thanks in advance for your response.
