Q: My vegetable garden is being invaded by Canada thistles from the field next door. Because it is an organic garden, I don’t want to spray the thistles with chemical herbicides. But I have to do something. Thistles are coming up in the asparagus. Would it work to spray the thistles with vinegar? And what about quackgrass? Will vinegar kill it?

Q: For several years I have had a problem with thistles in the lawn. They seem to migrate in from the fields nearby. I decided that last year was the year to get rid of thistles, no matter how much work it required. I failed. The more I dug them out, the more they seemed to come up. I had already tried to kill them with sprays, and that didn’t work either. Is there any way to get rid of thistles short of plowing up the lawn and starting over?

How Can I Eliminate Thistle?

Best Way to Kill Thistles

What can I do to eliminate thistle on our property? We are constantly pulling thistle out of our flowerbeds. And I must own stock in Roundup at this point. Nothing seems to keep it at bay. I am not opposed to clearing the beds and starting over if that's what it takes, since we moved into the house only a couple of years ago. How can I get rid of the thistle for good?

GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF CANADA THISTLE

Canada thistle is a cool season perennial which spreads by seed and vegetatively by creeping roots. In Indiana, Canada thistle normally initiates growth in spring, reaches the flower-bud stage the first week in June, and full flower about the third week of June. Seed production is usually completed in early July. Undisturbed plants tend to become inactive during hot weather (July and August). Then new shoots emerge during September and survive into November. The growth on Canada thistle in late September and October helps restore underground food reserves.

Recommended Practices in Natural Communities of High Quality

Cultural, mechanical, biological and chemical control methods have all been used on musk thistles with varying degrees of success in different parts of the country.

Cultural and Mechanical Methods

Musk thistle favors abandoned fields and overgrazed pastures. Rotationally grazed or deferred pasture is less susceptible to infestation than heavily grazed pastures. Although some investigators report thistle populations declined rapidly as natural succession proceeded, others report populations that persisted for twelve years in an unmanaged area.
