Okay, I know I'm not the only person who gets ragwort in their field, but it's driving me Crackers!!!
I have roughly an acre and a bit, and just me to control it, and it's my first summer there so it has never been managed properly before (well, not recently anyway) so it's flipping everywhere!! I'm getting it sprayed and quarantining the horses for now, but I wondered if there was a way to keep it away. I've tried pulling it, but it takes forever, and there's soooo much, I did a full barrow the other day and it only cleared about 4m squared, if that!
I was wondering, if I placed something that wouldn't let light through, would that make them wither?
Once it's down to a lower level I can manage it, but right now it's crazy, and waaay too much for me :( I'm terrified one of my horses will eat it and get sick
Any tips / ideas on how to control this evil weed, will be greatly appreciated! (like I said, I can't pull the whole thing right now, I need something that will do it first and then I can maintain it)
