Hi,

I have lots of docks on my land going to seed where the grass hasn't been cut. There's probably about 100 or so of them.

We have been cutting them off just below where the seeds are and putting these in bags to prevent them spreading even more.

If I burn these dried seeds and associated foliage, will that kill the seeds (if they have become seeds yet) or am I just helping to spread them by the fire blowing them around the place?

It should kill them.

Great thanks.

Just have to pick a good not too windy day just to be sure of not spreading them too much.
