Onion weed or wild garlic is a weed of flower beds and pathways. It forms large clumps of plants which will spread rapidly.
Onion weed, also known as wild garlic and wild onion, grows from small bulbs and has grass like leaves and clumps of bell shaped white flowers similar to those of snow drop. Although the wild garlic leaves can be eaten and make a good garlic butter the plants can overrun parts of the garden and often need to be controlled.
Where the onion weed is apart from desirable plants spray with Kiwicare Weed Weapon Extra Strength with Dye & Stick. On pathways and areas where no planting is to be carried out follow up with Weed Weapon Long Term or Weed Weapon Preventer . These will stop bulbs that have not emerged yet from growing. Kiwicare LawnPro Turfclean will kill onion weed between native grasses without harming the grass. As with all such bulbous plants a second treatment may be necessary.
