I have too much Yellow Rattle, it has grown so well that I now wish to reduce it, how can I do this?

Yellow Rattle is an annual wild flower which can only continue within the sward by growing a new plant from its seed each spring. Therefore to get rid of it just mow it tight to the ground, several times during the spring and summer, to prevent it flowering and setting seed. Your other perennial wild flowers will not be killed as they grow back each year from their root system and parent plant.
