How to get rid of yellow sorrel
Although yellow sorrel ( creeping woodsorrel) is a short-lived plant, it is regarded as a garden weed. This weed mainly spreads by exploding seed pods. If left to grow unchecked, it may become invasive.
Remove the plant by hand before the flowers form to prevent spreading the seed. Don’t put the removed oxalis plants on the compost heap.
