What is Clover ?
Clover comes from the legume family which also includes Pea’s & Beans. They have root nodules which allows them to make their own nitrogen which makes them an attractive thing to have within pasture land. They have flower heads which are usually 3 lobed but can sometimes get a 4 headed one. There are different types of clovers but the most common are White & Red Clover.
The plant is often found anywhere but most commonly in lawns or grassland. It can be identified with small flowers and petal shaped leaves.
Clover is not always a problem, in fact, most farmers encourage clover and use weed killers that are ‘Clover Safe’ to ensure only the grass and clover is encouraged to grow. However, in Lawns it can look untidy & swarm out grass; and in pasture land it can cause issues of laminitis with horses due to the high amount of nitrogen it can produce.
Though it is time consuming, hand weeding or hoeing beds and borders can be the best way to control this weed. However, if you have this weed in a ‘bare area’ then we would recommend a treatment of ‘Diamond’ which will control all other weeds and grasses.
If you have this weed within grassland, we would recommend looking at ‘Thrust’ which is safe to the grass. If you have this problem within a lawn we would recommend looking at ‘Enforcer’.
If you are wanting to control other weeds but keep the Clover, look at ‘Clovermax’. For control around Trees & Ornamentals consider looking at Flexidor.
