Killing weeds can be a long, hard process
Unfortunately, weeding is often necessary to make the best out of your garden or field. So, when spring comes, do not fail to care for your plants and flower beds! Remember, the best periods for killing weeds depend on the season and weather conditions.
It is essential to start applying herbicide on a dry day, this avoids the weed killer from being washed away by the rain, or rendered ineffective by frost. Spring and summer are, therefore, the most suitable seasons for killing weeds, especially where using a systemic herbicide.

How do weed killers work when killing weeds?
When killing weeds, nothing can replace a good weed killer. Herbicides can have different effects on unwanted plants. Systemic weed killers are the most commonly used in Australia, due to their effectiveness. Weed killer chemicals are applied to the green parts of the plant using a sprayer; the chemicals are then absorbed via the leaves, into the sap stream. The sap transports the chemicals down to the roots of the plant where it then works to destroy the weed effectively. During the warmest seasons, weeds grow rapidly and the sap circulates actively. This is why spring and summer are the best seasons for killing weeds.
