Q How can I get rid of clover in my lawn?
A lot of lawn-seed mixtures contain clover, as it stays green even when the weather is hot and dry. Not everyone likes clover, though. It can be a problem if you like to walk barefoot on grass as the flowers attract bees, which you can stand on by mistake and get stung on the foot.
Applying a high-nitrogen feed every couple of months during the growing season can help as it thickens up the grass so it out-competes the clover. Or you could try raking the lawn before mowing as this raises the low-growing clover stems so the mower can cut them and weaken the plant. If you’re happy to use chemicals, try a lawn weedkiller, which will kill weeds without killing grass. Products containing fluroxypyr are particularly effective.
