Dandelions can invade a bed

Dandelion is not only a useful plant, but also a harmful weed. Experienced gardeners and horticulturists note that dandelions are useful when they are in full bloom. Extracts from the roots or leaves are used in medicine to improve the digestive organs, and dried flowers are brewed as a medicinal tea.

After turning into fluff, dandelions proliferate and lose their health benefits. If left untreated, they can literally overrun flowerbeds and seedbeds. Read how to remove dandelions effectively and quickly in the article published by OBOZREVATEL.

There is one cheap, but very effective way to get rid of dandelions in the garden.

The necessary ingredients:

  • baking soda
  • water

Pour 1 liter of water into the sprayer and add 5 tablespoons of baking soda. Stir thoroughly, the baking soda should dissolve completely. Then spray the dandelion bushes. This remedy is not intended for long-term storage, so prepare it usually for once, and then repeat the procedure if necessary.

By the way, dandelions like acidic and dense soils, so their appearance may indicate an increase in acidity. Also plants indicate that there is a deficiency of calcium in the soil to an excess of potassium. To improve the condition of the bed, dandelions (including the tap root) should be removed. The density of the soil can be checked with a thin peg - if it enters hard, it is necessary to carry out aeration.
