In garden beds
To control speedwell in garden beds, spot treat with Weed Weapon Extra Strength, Rapid Action or Organic Weedfree Rapid. Weed Weapon is systemic and kills weeds down to the roots within 2-4 days and is an ideal product for use around established trees and shrubs. It is inactive in the soil so planting can be safely carried out soon after treatment. Organic Weedfree Rapid will burn down young weeds within hours and is certified organic by BioGro.
For best results apply spray in Spring and Autumn when weeds are growing. Control before flowering and seeding to prevent similar problems the following year.
In paths and driveways
For long term control on paths and driveways use Weed Weapon Long Term. This will kill a wide range of weeds and prevent regrowth for up to 12 months.
