Wild garlic or onion weed is a weed of flower beds and pathways. It forms large clumps of plants which will spread rapidly.
Identify the problem
Wild garlic, also known as onion weed, 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 wild garlic is apart from desirable plants spray with Weed Weapon Extra Strength and 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. LawnPro Turfclean will kill garlic between native grasses without harming the grass. As with all such bulbous plants a second treatment may be necessary.
