Liverworts As Weeds In The Garden.
Please could you advise me on how to kill liverwort? I have it in my lawn and borders.
In the garden borders the soil pH should be kept close to neutral (pH 7) which is suitable for most plants other than rhododendrons and similar lime-haters.Borders and other cultivated areas should be well stocked with plants and regularly hoed and raked in order to maintain a rough and well-drained surface.Where soil compacts readily after rain the organic content of the soil can be improved by digging in or mulching with coarser materials such as well-rotted farmyard manure,garden compost or composted bark.
In this case it is likely that the lawn is badly compacted and unless this problem is addressed with spiking or hollow coring the liverwort will simply re-grow. Temporary control, however,can be achieved by applying the ready-to-use formulation of dichlorophen.For More information:
