How can I get rid of slyti on the dacha


The topic of how to get rid of such a grass, how to sleep, is disturbed by a large number of gardeners. After all, this grass is quietly spread throughout the garden area and grows under bushes, trees, and even on the lawn itself. To remove this weed from the garden is not easy.

And although for many gardeners, slyt is the worst enemy, many people are used to adding it to their salads, and in some countries they even make medicine from it.

General Description and Characteristics

The plant is light-requiring and blooms only in the sunlit places. In the shade, the flowering of grass slows noticeably. Snyt has self-seeding properties, rapid growth of the root system occurs throughout the year. Dreams can live in one place for about 50 years.

To remove is a severe plant, possesses special viability and distribution. The main striking qualities of Slyti:

  1. Propagated by the root system throughout the year.
  2. Weed growth occurs in early spring, when vegetation in the garden is not yet available.
  3. It has an impressive growth rate, rapid germination of shoots and overcrowding, which allows the grass to occupy the entire area of ​​the site and oust other growing vegetation from it.
  4. They can be pollinated by themselves, the seeds are usually carried by wind or with the help of insects.
  5. Restored and grow anew after mechanical stress from gardeners.
  6. Give a large number of seeds.

Why can sleep appear and grow in the summer cottage?

The main reasons for the growth of this weed are:

  1. Attempts to remove the heat off at the time of its flowering.
  2. Plowing of fertile soil in spring and autumn time, on which planting is planned for the future.
  3. Plowing and weeding of the soil without deep processing. This method of plowing the soil is considered superficial and incomplete. He is not always able to remove harmful weeds from the site. Shelling is a tillage method based on weeding and burying seeds to a depth. Seeds that are under the soil, can germinate in it, but will not rise to the surface of the soil. In the case when the weed has grown to a great extent, the peeling of seeds must be made to a depth of 15 centimeters. Peeling is carried out first along the site, and then across.
  4. Remote weed is collected in one pile and left on the site in the form of compost.

Clogging the garden with such grass leads to:

  1. Depletion of beneficial soil components.
  2. Searing the soil.
  3. Decrease in productivity of a garden.
  4. The occurrence of infections and various diseases in cultivated plants.
  5. The formation of pests.

How to destroy sleep?

A weed growing in a garden, in a flower garden or on a garden bed always spoils the appearance of the vegetable garden. The main striking factor of a weed is its rapid growth, which significantly exceeds the growth of cultivated plants. So, weed is capable take away nutrients from cultivated plants, and also light from the sun. Also weed strongly attracts various peststhat actively attack garden plants.

Now there are many ways to combat weed, but the most popular simple weeding. If you want to get rid of an annoying weed, then it is worth destroying it not with your bare hands, but using garden tools - a hoe, hoe. The best tool in the fight will be flat cutter.

The main advantage of the flat cutter is its universality in application, and usability. The tool is equipped with three surfaces for work. The large grip of the tool helps work in open areas, and the narrow structure of the flat-cutter helps to carefully remove harmful grass in hard-to-reach places. The long handle will allow the cottager not to bend down when working with the garden, which will save energy and not get tired.

When removing weeds, weed need both the beds and the space between them. Otherwise, the weeds will recover and grow back, continuing to harm the plants. If with other plants this method allows to achieve the best result, then with sleep it is weak. All because of the deep and durable root weed system.

How to deal with dreams on a bed of flowers?

Harder is the struggle with the weed on the territory of the flower garden. And although it is difficult ways, but they help for a long time to get rid of sleep.

  1. The rapid growth of the weed root system can be slowed down. For this you need to build a mechanical obstacle. To protect the flowers from the effects of snyti, you need to bury around it any metallic obstacle.
  2. If the flower bed came to dream, then you should remove its stems. Next is to carry out the mulching of the earth, using mowed grass, and cover the soil from above with a dark shelter so that sunlight does not come to it. Seven days later, the shelter is removed, and cardboard is placed on a piece of land and covered with earth. Holes must be made in the cardboard so that water can flow to the roots of perennial flowers. Such an operation should be carried out carefully so as not to harm the flowers.
  3. Regular mowing and tearing off a noticeable part of the slyti allows to weaken the weed and lead to its partial death. In this case, you need to do this often, if you miss at least a week, then the dream will grow through the territory of the flower bed. Weeding is also an effective way to fight the grass, but it is not easy to do it.
  4. For weed control use herbicides. Use herbicides should be very careful not to damage other crops. To do this, herbicides must be piled on the top of the weed.

We told you how to deal with dreams. Which method is most suitable for your conditions, you decide for yourself. And we wish you patience and perseverance in the fight against such a harmful and annoying weed. Good luck to you!

Where is growing dreaming?

Sonyt in the plant system is allocated in the umbrella family (Umbelliferae) a separate kind - Dreams (Aegopodium). The most common is to sonyat ordinary (Aegopodium podagraria L.) Translated from the Greek, the Latin name of the plant means “goat's foot”: its leaf looks like a goat's hoof.

In Europe and Asia, it is difficult to name a country where you can’t sleep. It is distributed practically in all regions of Russia and the CIS. Everywhere slyt forms continuous thickets on clearings, weedy places, at dwelling. It occupies a large area on the edges of deciduous and mixed forests.

Locals call Snyt as a marsh marshmallow, dyaglitsa, snitka, dedalin and other names. The name of the plant to sleep in Russian presumably comes from the concept of “snack”, which confirms the edibility of the wild plant.

How to deal with dreams in the garden and in the garden?

Naturally, weeds must be fought. Due to its natural aggressiveness, weeds grow faster than cultivated plants. For their own survival, they take away moisture and nutrients from grown crops, and tall ones also shade the plants, depriving them of full-fledged sunlight.

Weeds with surface roots are easy to fight. But snyt has a long rhizome with roots penetrating up to 40 cm into the soil and is able to live in the form of a bush in one place for up to 50 years.

Physical destruction

To avoid seed reproduction slyti, it is necessary to destroy the weed before flowering. Systematic weeding kills filamentous seedlings of germinated seeds.

If weeds for various reasons have grown and bloomed, then cut off umbrellas should be destroyed. They must not be put into compost heaps. The vegetative part is sent to compost or dug in during the autumn soil preparation.

Vegetative reproduction rate will be reduced by systematic sampling of rhizomes when digging a plot. If the plot is not digging up, then you can use the following technique. Mow or cut off at the root and take out of the site elevated weed mass. Slyti inflorescences should be burned, and the vegetative part can be laid in a compost heap.

Then you can use the method of "suffocation". The bed is covered with thick black film to isolate the solar lighting. On the film stack heavy objects. Under the film, the seeds of the slyti begin to germinate and after 10-12 days the film is removed and the seedlings are destroyed. If vegetative shoots have sprouted (from underground buds), they are dug out and destroyed (they cannot be put into compost).

You can do differently. Stump the bed and cover with cardboard or several layers of thick paper. Top with a layer of soil or a mixture of soil with manure or compost. When organic matter is heated up in the spring to 70 ° C, some of the seed will lose germination, and young seedlings that have appeared will die from high temperature. The roots of cultivated plants will pierce the paper and go down, but the growth of weeds from the bottom up will be limited. Conducting a permanent weed will securely secure the effect achieved.

Chemical destruction

To destroy the overgrown weed, it is necessary to destroy its underground stem - rhizome with vegetative buds. The most effective method for the destruction of the weed grown in the soil is the use of chemicals - herbicides.

When using chemicals, remember about their negative impact on the health of you and your family members and pets. When working with toxic chemicals, it is necessary to apply sanitary safety measures (boots, gown, gloves, glasses, headgear, respirator).

For destroying sleep by chemical “weeding”, effective roundup, tornado, glyphosate, killer, sniper, hurricane and others are effective.

When using chemicals, remember:

  • They are continuous pesticides and destroy all live plants in the treated area. Therefore, herbicides are used before planting crops.
  • Weeds acquire resistance to herbicide and cease to respond properly to its introduction. Therefore, chemicals must be periodically changed.
  • Treatment with herbicides must be repeated during the warm season in spring before planting of cultivated plants and in autumn after their harvesting.

Measures to combat dreams in the garden

Snoot does not grow on sodding soil. If you overwhelm you in the garden, the garden is best to grow and the weed will disappear. If garden sulking is not provided, then physical measures to combat sleep are almost the same as their destruction in garden plots. However, there are differences.

It is impossible to dig deep in the soil with a sample of rhizomes in a garden under fruiting trees. It is impossible to use herbicides that can damage young roots or the tinned surface of the soil.

How to be? In the garden using the method of attrition and individual destruction of sleep. The method of exhaustion consists in tracking and destroying shoots in the phase of appearance of the first leaf. Try to cut the leaf just below the root of the neck. A weakened young plant will die.

Cut overgrown weed to the soil and drip a solution on a fresh cut. A week later, repeat this process. Do not begin to dig the rhizomes of already treated plants. The toxic chemical will destroy the rhizome of the weed in 10-15 days. The same method is applicable to other weeds (burdock).

If you grow up in a perennial flower garden or berry bushes, in the middle of summer you can fence the weed away with cardboard or other material in the middle of summer and gently brush with toxic chemicals on the leaves. Do not touch the treated plant for 2 - 3 weeks. If during this period of time the leaves do not turn yellow and do not fall off, repeat the treatment of the weed. Do not touch the treated plant for 3–4 weeks, it is necessary to protect it from rain and watering.

Healing properties slyti

Slyt ordinary is used in the people for the treatment of inflammatory processes in gout, rheumatism, arthritis, arthritis, sciatica, eczema. Her infusions and decoctions are successfully used in the treatment of wounds, pressure sores, erysipelas, and bacterial and fungal infections.

The chemical composition of the slyti ordinary is very close to the composition of human blood. Snyt ordinary contains a number of useful substances that give the plant a high nutritional value. It is used in the form of beverages, teas, a component of green soups, vitamin salads and other dishes.

How to grow dreaming on the "pharmacy" garden?

Snyt has numerous medicinal properties and it can be grown on the garden "pharmacy" garden bed. To dream it did not clog the plot with seeds, it is necessary to cut the inflorescences before flowering and destroy them.

To prevent the rhizome from spreading to the garden and garden, it is necessary to fence the area designated for culture with a hard and non-decaying (part of an iron barrel, a tin curb) material to a depth of 25-30 cm.

Outside of the dacha, it is necessary to destroy all the thickets, or at least the inflorescences, to wash off, so that the seeds are not transferred to the site, and no new infection with tears occurs.

Hearing ordinary (Aegopodium podagraria)

Whether you need to dream in the garden or it needs to be completely destroyed is up to you, dear reader. Our job is to offer you different ways of dealing with this weed and medicinal plant. And the choice, as always, is yours.


ERROR: A photo with roots is not a dream. You can not destroy the dream of pinching off at least every day growing shoots !! This is the practice of the gardener! Only cover with a black non-woven material or old linoleum or chemicals can destroy styt. And the green remains without seeds can be put into compost - only it is better to burn the roots. There, where you regularly dig and choose the roots, there will be no sweeping! Only on ridges with perennial crops to grow dry grows and is difficult to destroy!

Thank. Photos replaced.

I like your articles very much - informative and easily accessible! Thank you very much! All the best to you

Come on you. She is not so malicious. And in the garden, where is she from? On the plot try to find, not like in the garden. Running site if only. Yes, somehow and can not see slyt on running sites. And there will be - to attach it on the edges of the site, at attention, at attention) and let them bear the honey. All good. Here is a dandelion - this one is omnipresent. So it is undesirable to fight him. All the benefits of it. Of course you can not dissolve them, yes. But here they specifically hunt them ... there will be other things.

depending on where the site is located. I'm in a flower garden constantly struggling with my dreams. My plot is like her.

And I even know why I like it. Because sour soil. Especially in the flower garden. Your soil has never seen dolomite, sideratov, and just fresh, new soil. In volume. In such a good volume.
Yes, for a flower bed, a flower bed, a rosary and other mixborders, the soil should be slightly more acidic than in the garden. But just a little bit. And this can only be caught by measuring the acidity, using all the necessary indicators for an adult.
It has been tested on itself - just by changing the composition, structure and pH of the soil, even in the surface layer of the soil you can completely change the floropopulation))

Yes, I already choked on this slyti, I have a feeling that the more I blurted it out, the more it fills the garden.

. It is necessary to change the composition, structure and acidity of the soil. Year after year. And then find the balance - maintain. Year after year. And constantly. And then everything will be within aerofitness, and not hang the curse of Sisyphean labor.

So you are not so familiar with dreams. More than 35 years can not get rid of it. She walked under the foundation of the shed, walked under the shed and went out into the garden, into the raspberries ... fighting! fight!

My mother-in-law cooked soups out of it in spring, very tasty. Personally, my perception, the taste resembles saury in jars.

I would like to read more in detail how to use sleep in the diet

Approximately like cabbage. When I was a child, my grandmother told me how they cooked soup from her, extinguished her, and even made sours. I also put it in a salad, but I didn't appreciate the pickled one, maybe I’m doing it wrong. Well, nothing, I have a plot running, this whole meadow is good, someday I will learn and make sour.

I would like to have recipes with dreams, since it is so useful.

Already once wrote in Botanichka how to make a salad from the back. Lightly boil the young greens and serve it with sour cream or mayonnaise. Delicious! And soup from slyti too good. And with a dream to fight - do not respect yourself. That somehow tried to cut it with a lawnmower, until it blooms. So what? Instead of sweeping the clearing, the dandelions were completely flooded. It seems to me that it is necessary to take a reasonable attitude to what grows on your site. If you, of course, plowed the whole area under the garden, then another thing. But if you want to have a green meadow under the fruit trees, then it is better not to touch it. I still remember how one summer resident, having heard a lot of advice about getting rid of, raised it all under an apple tree. And then take the apple tree and wither. Apparently, slyt retained moisture in the soil, which was used by the apple tree.

Хуже сныти только колючий бодяк. Не могу с ним справиться. Может есть у кого- нибудь такой опыт?

Попробуйте подрезать тяпкой и на срез насыпать горочкой соль или мочевину. Сверху, чтобы сразу дождями или при поливке не смыло, накройте чем-нибудь (дощечкой, камушком). Используя мочевину и просверлив в спиленных стволах дырочки, мы избавились от слив и многочисленной их поросли.

I dug up the plot and manually unhesfully cleaned the roots. Long, but effective, meter by meter.
I do not agree: dandelion-babbling compared with dreaming. A viable plant, the root system is branched and sprouts instantly, any piece of the missed root immediately turns into a bush. It grows instantly in a solid carpet of green.
Sometimes it was necessary to dig up one section several times. In order to “finish off” - under the fences and in other hard-to-reach places, I process Roundup. But I know from experience: where the chemistry is processed, the dream comes back anyway, in a year somewhere (next season). But manually perekopany site, for 10 years, is clean. One problem, from neighbors through the fence, is trying to get back to sleep ...

Yes, yes ... This is a terrible contagion. And it is necessary to fight immediately on the entire area - and if the site is running, it is just a disaster. Manually dug up and chose the roots in the area of ​​6 acres - four years! Misfortune happened - the year was not on the site - and everything. Again, again, but the forces are not the same ... It remains only to mow, mow and mow ... True, she freaked out here and burnt her with “Zeus.” An ugly bald spot was formed on the plot - but now it is the sweetest for me in the world :-)

I do not destroy some of the useful herbs (weed only flower beds, raspberries) Dreams do not allow other weeds to grow. And in comparison with the wheatgrass, it's still better to sleep. So, it grows here and there. And we use the same way: we collect a large plastic bucket of leaves: snyt, dandelion, coltsfoot ... and steamed. In the bucket, then soar legs. This infusion is good to use in the hair bath.
And if you buy a mold more and (steamed grass in it), then sit in this infusion with a semi-immersion.

I can not remember, but I know for sure that there is a special preparation for the system root system to sink and it destroys this drug for sure ... just goes to the roots and it is to sink ... you need to attract specialists ...

Sniper, Roundup? But they are not only from slyti ... It seems to me that you will not find a highly specialized drug, it is unprofitable to release it ...

I will find more about dreaming ..., and this information is m. who will come in handy ...
Allocate herbicides continuous and selective action.
Continuous herbicides are used when crop plants have not yet been planted.
The most effective herbicides of continuous action are systemic drugs.
They penetrate the plant and move to the points of growth, destroying both the aboveground mass and the root system.
One of the most worthy drugs in this group is the Tornado herbicide.
It can easily cope even with such malicious weeds as sow thistle, sleep, hogweed, burdock, bindweed, nettle, as well as unwanted tree-shrub vegetation.
Tornado has no effect on the seeds, it is ideal for processing the site before sowing and planting all types of plants.
During the season, with the help of a Tornado, you can easily maintain garden paths and the ground along the fences in a tidy condition. In use, it is very simple.
A few milliliters of the drug is diluted in water and treated overgrown areas with the resulting solution.
Tornado penetrates the leaves of plants and with the juice moves to the roots, disrupting the work of life processes. After a few days, the leaves of the plants turn yellow.
The complete death of herbaceous weed plants occurs in 2 weeks, tree-shrub vegetation - in 1-2 months (depending on the species).
For ease of use on sale there is a finished form of the drug - Tornado BAU.
A ready-to-use solution of the herbicide is in a small sprayer.
It can be used in parts as needed: Tornado BAU is stored for 2 years.
Herbicides of selective action are intended for destruction of weeds in landings of cultural plants.
They do not damage the crop for the treatment of which they are intended, but only suppress weeds.
The main vegetable crop of many summer cottages is potatoes.
Weeds in potato plantations can reduce yields by up to 50%. Weed plants are the most dangerous in the early stages of culture development, when potatoes form the root system.
Fortunately, today there is an opportunity to deal with weeds in the planting of potatoes and tomatoes with the help of a selective herbicide Lazurit.
This is the only drug for the destruction of weeds in the planting of potatoes and tomatoes, approved for use in small farms. Lapis lazuli is a smart herbicide, it not only destroys weeds, but also suppresses their seedlings in the soil, preventing the emergence of a second “wave” of seedlings.
The first treatment is carried out before the seedlings of the culture, the second - at a height of 5 cm tops.
Weeds do not only harm vegetables, they suffer from weeds and berries, and lawns.
Manually removing weeds from freshly sown lawn and planting strawberries is dangerous.
In the first case
You run the risk of trampling down a young lawn and damaging unformed turf, in the second - damaging the root system of plants located in the surface layer of the soil.
Without difficulty, the herbicide of selective action for the destruction of weeds on lawns and in strawberry plantings - Lontrel-300D will cope with this task.
Lontrel-300D is distinguished by exceptionally high activity against sow thistles, mountaineers, chamomile, and plantain, and is also the best way to destroy dandelion on the lawn.
On the lawn Lontrel-300D used after cutting, and on strawberries - after harvesting.
Herbicides will not only save your time and energy, but also help to avoid damage to the root system of cultivated plants during weeding.

You get a very tasty green soup from a dream. With nettles, wild leek, potatoes)). I add young tender leaves to the salad. Tasty and healthy. And it grows on the edges of the site. On beds almost does not meet. Periodically we mow in the summer under bushes, before flowering - that's all.

I support you, Angelina. Every plant in nature can be useful, you just have to figure it out. After all, nettle is also considered a weed. However, is there anything better for nettle decoction hair, which strengthens, refreshes and makes hair shiny! And the soup of young nettle and sorrel is generally a storehouse of vitamins.

Good evening, please tell me how to deal with the Syriac vochnik?

good day, Elena! Sytoid vatochnik is a plant that is not very simple. If it is on the site quite a bit, then you can try the method of exhaustion. Those. prune at the level of the soil each time the sprouts just appear above the ground until the root is exhausted. But carefully! If not regularly cut - rhizome will only grow more. Of the herbicides for today there is no unambiguous solution. But you can try Roundup, Banvel, Compass in the phase of 6-8 true leaves. We have to fight with a weed for several years (according to some data up to 5 years) as it has a very powerful root system. And do not be surprised if not all the aboveground parts will die from the herbicide, the plant is extremely powerful. It will be necessary to repeat the processing.

I am now interested. Those who generously water their gardens with round hands, tornads, and other herbicides, as a result, which products? Is it possible to eat it without damage to health?

Good afternoon, Svetlana! In fact, whatever the manufacturers say, none of the products in this group is harmless. In particular, the same roundup. It is established that the terms of decomposition, of glyphosate entering into it and its decomposition products in the soil differ depending on the climate and chemical composition of the soil and range from 55 days to 3 years. In addition, glyphosate tends to migrate in the soil, and thus falls not only on the treated plants, but also in organisms, and on the territory not intended for processing. And, besides glyphosate, there are 10 more toxic components present in roundup than glyphosate, which are not mentioned in the herbicide advertisement. What diseases causes roundup even do not want to list, it is enough that among them in one of the first place is cancer.

Just about, and I about the same. Therefore, I am amazed at those who fiercely destroying weeds by roundup, at the same time destroying their own health.
