The Q&A Archives: Lawns - Weed - Wild Daisy

Question: I have been told that my lawn has some wild daisies growing and that it is a very difficult weed to kill and most likely will result me in killing some of my lawn to kill this weed. Is this true and is there any way to kill the weed without killing the lawn?


Answer: Bellis perennis (White Carpet English Daisy) is a broadleaf weed and most weed and feed formulas will control it. Look for the active ingredient 2,4-D (sometimes sold as dandelion weed killer). You can spot treat the weeds or use a granular weed and feed. Best wishes with your lawn.
