How to kill weeds quickly and organically in large grassy areas

Written by Nicola Wallis

How to kill weeds without using weedkiller is something that all gardeners have to consider.  

Weeds are the bane of a gardener's life and they seem to multiply overnight. Sometimes, the easiest thing to do is reach for weed killer but that isn't always the best choice. 
In large grassy areas, such as lawns and paddocks or for organic gardeners or animal owners, weed killers are not an option.

The most eco friendly way to get rid of weeds is to dig them out by their roots.  SpeedWeed offers a quick, satisfying and efficient way to rid gardeners of the problem.

SpeedWeed is an innovative weeding tool. It is designed for large areas and is great for lawns, orchards, paddocks, grassy banks and verges. Using it is effortless. Unlike other weeding tools there is no digging, pulling, twisting or bending required. This precision tool has a high quality hardwood handle and sharpened stainless steel cutting scoop and foot bar. Most weeds will be instantly killed off and any regrowth will be weakened by mowing or another ruthless round of speed weeding. Using a Haxnicks SpeedWeed is easy, efficient and extremely satisfying!

  • This is happening to commercial pumpkin growers too so you are not alone. The good news is that pumpkins store well so provided you follow the advice above they’ll be fine for Halloween. As the vines die back, watch the stems. Once your pumpkin is orange and the stem is shrivelled and dry, you should pick it. It’s important to keep the stems on and not to use the stems as carrying handles. Once a stem breaks off, the pumpkins or squash won’t store well. Wash them well and “cure” them by placing them in the sun, for about 10 days to harden the skins. The important thing then is to find them somewhere cool, dark and dry as they will continue to ripen if they are in the light. They store well for up to three months.
