<p>Physical removal: One of the most effective ways to get rid of horsetail is to physically remove it from the soil. This can be done by hand pulling, digging or hoeing. However, be aware that even small pieces of root left in the soil can regenerate. Mulching: Cover the area with a thick layer of mulch, such as wood chips or bark, to deprive the horsetail of light and air. Herbicides: Glyphosate-based herbicides can be effective in controlling horsetail, but be sure to follow the label instructions carefully and avoid using it around desirable plants. Boiling water: Pouring boiling water on the horsetail can kill it, but be careful not to damage nearby plants or burn yourself. Cultural practices: Regularly mowing or trimming the horsetail can weaken it and make it less competitive. <a href="https://www.mybalancenow.page/">Target Card Balance Now</a></p>

Any ideas for getting rid of horsetail?

<p>Hi All, </p>
<p>One of the gardens I  work at has a major horsetail problem. Any ideas for getting rid of it please?</p>
<p>We've tried digging it out but the roots are really deep so you never really get all of them out, we've tried continuously hoeing the tops to try and weaken the roots but this results in the tops dividing and we've tried a biodegradable weedkiller from the Green Gardener which does kill the top growth but then regrows.</p>
<p>We're getting very grumpy with it so if anyone can suggest anything we'd be grateful.</p>
