I have a thistle problem in a wild flower meadow; can I control this with a herbicide weed-killer?

Be very cautious when considering using herbicides to control weeds in wild flower situations. If a herbicide product states that it will kill thistles, it will usually also kill other members of the thistle family, which you may be surprised to learn includes many of our wild flower species, such as Oxeye Daisy, Knapweed, Cornflower, Corn Marigold, Yarrow etc. I suggest that you seek advice before using any weed-killers within a wild flower situation. I provide advice on the management of weed issues, either over the phone or on site. Please refer to the ‘Advice‘ page of this website for details.
