Don't let it take over. If spraying in the autumn is supposed to do
any good at all, I'd spray both times. What do you plan to spray
I think creeping charlie is the reason my little yard used to be flat
and now is bumpy. Much of the stuff grew along the wall, so I didn't
worry about it much, easy to rip out, but I think it was also growing
in other directions.
You can rip out long "underground stems", I forget what the real name
is (rhysomes?), if the ground is soft enough, but often they break in
no more than 6 feet.
I don't know because I embrace it. The bees love it, it smells great
when you mow it, and it makes a good medicinal tea high in vitamin C.
To me the epitome of summer is lying in a bed of 'Wild Thyme', as I
have always [apparently incorrectly] called it and watching clouds.
I don't think my CCharlie has any flowers at all. It's a vine, right,
and that's not unusual for vines, iiuc.
I now also have English Ivy, that finally reached my front door from
the woods, and it's a lot prettier. I've been weeding out other weeds
where the English ivy grows and they don't seem to come back. I may
let it grow over the part near the front door that doesn't get much
sunlight because it's on the north side of the house.
