Any Idea how to control Annual Bluegrass?

What sort of methods can I use to get rid of it



I don't even know what annual bluegrass is, so sorry, can't help. Must be something indigenous there, I'd guess, and one thing I do know, grasses are difficult to kill off - we have trouble with couch grass here, and once its in the plants, it's impossible to get rid of permanently.

It's an Americanism for Poa annua (Annual Meadow Grass). The rest of the English speaking world call it this, whereas we call it AMG.

Basically, kill it before it seeds, which can be a problem as it is very prolific from very early in it's life!

Ok, thanks! I got the name off an American website so don't go thinking I'm a Yank at heart or anything lol
