Identifying Australian garden weeds

Australian garden weeds differ and, therefore, every gardener should be able to identify them accurately. When struggling against weeds in the garden, it is crucial to be properly acquainted with their growing habits so that you can take the appropriate weed killing action. As with all plants, Australian garden weeds are known by both their official, scientific names as well as a common “nickname.”

Even though garden weed’s names may differ from region to region, you should be able to recognise the most common types to ensure that you choose the best weed treatment available. Remember that several types of weeds exist, and not all garden treatments are suitable for all of them.

Categories of Australian garden weeds.

Australian garden weeds belong to three main categories: annual weeds, biennial weeds and perennial weeds. Annual weeds have a shorter life cycle; they are designed to last one year and rapidly generate seeds. For these plants, the best weed removal techniques consist of treating them before they produce seeds, as once their seeds are spread, a few weeds could rapidly turn into an invasive population. Biennial and perennial weeds live longer than annual weeds and are tougher. They sprout year by year from the same root, meaning that it is impossible to get rid of them unless you kill the root permanently, using a deep root weed killer.

We have carefully calculated the best rates at which to apply for each type of weed problem. Applying at a strong rate is not recommended and will not result in better performance. Please ensure that you read the label before use and use pesticides safely.


Does the Concentrate need using up straight away after mixing?

It’s always good practice to only mix up what you need for that treatment, but you can retain the unused solution for up to a week, since a gradual loss of activity will occur. Make sure that you store any weedkiller safely away from the reach of children and pets.
