The Q&A Archives: wild violets

Question: How can I get rid of wild violets, organically, if possible. Do I have to get the entire root if I dig them?

Answer: Digging is the best approach. You will find they grow from bulbous roots and the entire root system needs to be removed. I've dug them out of my lawn and have also kept the lawn mowed short to keep the violet's leaves from growing. It starves them out eventually. Good luck with your project!
