which grow all winter. The optimum mowing strategy is to mow in the rain (which stirs up a fungus that infects cut stems), and repeat multiple times while the weed is in its young leafy stage heading into spring and summer.

Do this several seasons in a row and you’ll have noticeably lessess thistle each time, no spraying required.
