I have moved into new garden and have noticed mares tail coming up. How can I eradicate it.
Short of sending a small nuke into your yard, there is not much that can be done about this prehistoric plant. These articles will help you to, at leas, make an attempt:
I can't do anything with my front garden as it is being overrun with horsetail.I have spent alot of money on different weed killers and nothing seems to work.
This ancient plant (which still reproduces by spore) will not be killed off. Many attempts have lead to failure, as it spreads underground, and by microscopic spore through the air.
The plant does have some uses.

Can anyone tell me what this is? It's very invasive and I assume it's a weed. Thanks in anticipation! Shelagh.
You may have to consider this a permanent resident. Equisetum is an ancient plant that reproduces by spore AND underground root system. They will not go peacefully, and you will kill your entire lawn trying to get rid of it.

I have horse tail reed planted in three self watering pots in an uncovered area that gets full sun. They were doing very well but over the last two weeks all three plants started showing signs of distress. The leaves are turning yellow and brittle and dying out. One plant is worse than the other two but all showing signs of distress. I like in a tropical climate. The plants get full sun and I water them regularly. Help!!!!
There may be a salt buildup or excess fertilizer. It's best to use compost as a fertilizer rather than liquid or time release. Also, make sure they haven't gotten too crowded in the pots. Since they prefer a moist site, I wouldn't think it is overwatered. I would remove the lower watering bin and flush out the upper container for salts and fertilizer per the instructions below. Also, remove any browning stems.
