Let's declare war on the Throat - a vicious weed that threatens our gardens and vegetable gardens


Once upon a time there was a field thistle, he was a pink thistle. He lived, naturally, in the fields. Life was difficult for him: the soil in our North-West is thin, sour, and the competitors around are above his head. But our thug did not give up, he fought with all his might.

He overtook all the neighbors in height, and work was going on underground. From year to year, he built up a powerful root system. He hid his main root to a great depth, long horizontal roots extended from it in different directions. For greater reliability in the matter of survival, these roots have learned to give adventitious buds, from which new aerial shoots develop. If any of the roots are injured, then the buds appear more abundantly, and the shoots from them grow faster. With its rhizomes, the thistle conquered new areas. Where he appeared, there he remained to live. And any weather cataclysms were nothing to him.

It would seem that he settled well on the ground. But this is not enough for him. He wants to conquer as much space as possible. Therefore, from July to September, it blooms actively. And to form more seeds, he made friends with the bees: he gives them nectar for honey, and they pollinate his flowers. His flowers are attractive in their own way - tubular lilac-crimson, collected in inflorescences - baskets, which are wrapped in wrappers with spines sticking out in all directions. However, these thorns are spread out very gracefully, and therefore the inflorescences are not devoid of a peculiar beauty.

In the second half of summer, seeds ripen in baskets, like in a cradle. Caring parents release them into the big life, armed with hairy parachutes, so that the children scatter around the world on the wings of the wind in search of a better life.

And so they found our gardens with dug up and fertilized soil. The settlers gladly mastered the abandoned areas, where no one bothered them. Their lush thickets have become a source of distribution throughout the near and distant district of this most vicious of perennial rhizome weeds. Scientists have calculated that 4.5 m² thickets of thistle can sow up to 50 hectares of soil!

So dear gardeners, be careful! Your happiness if this villain is not yet in your garden microdistrict. In recent years, he began to actively develop our gardens. For example, in my garden and in my neighbors for more than 50 years nothing of the kind has been found. But gradually, from the far end of the village, this weedy general reached us. Who was inattentive to the cleanliness of his garden, he "missed" the moment of appearance of uninvited guests.

The gardeners realized how strong handsome men more than a meter in height with a thorny stem and skillfully cut leaves, along the edges of which sharp thorns also stick out, grew up in the unweathered beds. They brazenly boast: "You can't take us with your bare hands!" And really, without tarpaulin mittens, you can't get close to them. This is not wheatgrass and not a tender dream for you.

The thug in the garden is, according to scientists, 11 kg of mineral fertilizers "eaten" by him or about 100 kg of organic fertilizers per hundred square meters. Not to mention the fact that our carrots and beets will not see the sun and may die, and the potato harvest will decrease by one third. If the thistle is weeded in the usual way, it will recover very quickly, besides, it will become even more magnificent.

As soon as the thistle appeared in the garden, it immediately begins to sink into the ground by 5–7 m with its root. At a depth of 30 cm and below, root suckers grow horizontally in several floors. It is very difficult to select them from such a depth. If a piece of rhizome at least 3 cm long remains in the soil, it will give life to a new plant. Moreover, this new plant can break through from a depth of 70 cm! And if there are a lot of such pieces left after improper processing, then you can consider your work not only useless, but even harmful, because thickets are formed even thicker than before weeding.

However, armed with knowledge about the biology of this enemy of the beds, it can still be overcome. Scientists agronomists propose a method of control called attrition. Although it is somehow cruel to apply such a word to a living being, but what can you do, because our whole life is a struggle.

And the essence of the method is as follows. The roots of perennial weeds accumulate nutrients, which are supplied by the green aboveground part. Due to these reserves, plants recover after wintering and after weeding (tearing the upper part of the plant out of the ground). If, during the summer, the entire green part of the plant is regularly removed, the underground part will begin to starve, lose strength and soon become completely depleted and cannot resume. If you remove not only the green part, but also try to grab as large a piece of the underground root as possible, then it will fizzle out faster.

It is easier to deal with a thug if you spot him in the garden at the very beginning of an attempt to settle in your garden. To do this, you need to regularly, at least once a week, carefully examine your entire site in search of the very first sprout. This is especially important if your neighbors already have this weed. Neighbors need to be taught to deal with it, and if they are not engaged in their garden, then ask them to at least mow the plants at the beginning of flowering, so as not to let them seed.

If you find a sprout, you need to pull it out: slowly pull it, then it will come off with a piece of rhizome about 20 cm.Do not let the stem grow more than 10 cm. (Once I tried to remove, together with the root, the first plant in my garden with a height of 20 As a result, I dug a hole 80 cm deep, but I didn’t get to the root of the root.) Large stems can be chopped up with a shovel or dug out with a garden pitchfork, and then depleted by regular cutting.

And one more way of fighting helps - chemical, with the help of roundup. I diluted the Roundup in a ratio of 1: 100, rinsed the stems of the thistle about 20-30 cm high in this solution, then put plastic bottles with the neck cut off on them so that the rain would not wash away the "chemistry" and so that neighboring plants would not suffer from fumes. One of my neighbors dug up the whole garden, combed all the rhizomes of this weed with a pitchfork and threw them out of her plot. Soon, in the place where this waste was dumped, powerful thickets grew, which began to supply seeds to all vegetable gardens within a radius of, probably, a kilometer. The neighbor was wrong. The rhizomes had to be burned.

If a thief has started up in your gardening area, you must not lose your vigilance, I'm afraid, until the end of our days. Its seeds, barely hitting the soil surface, germinate. True, they emerge if they are buried no more than 1–2 cm. The deeper the depth, the more difficult it is for them to break through. From 5 cm or more, they will not germinate, but they will lie without losing their germination for many years and wait for them to be dug to a shallower depth.

So this weed very well adapted to the conquest of loose beds. And while triumphantly marching through the gardens. Drive away the uninvited guest!
