Frequently Asked Questions
How well does this work on Canadian Thistle?
The Weed remover works pretty darned well, as long as your ground is damp from spring rains. Once it gets hard and dry, not so good. It's really kind of fun to pull the thistles and dandilions out using this device -- as long as the ground is damp, that is.
Can I use this to pull annual bluegrass (Poa annua)?
Sort of. To use it you have to find the middle of the weed. If you have a lot, it is hard to determine where the center is. If you just have a few, it is easier. Either way, you'll be able to get a lot of it, but if you have a lot, it'll be more frustrating.
Will it work in clay soils, and if so, how well?
Yes, wet it for a few minutes until it's soft enough that you don't have to use any force on the tool. If you are not sure how much force is too much, then wet the soil a lot until it's squishy, then try the tool. It won't work as well. Let the soil dry until it works. That's the right amount of force.
