Thistles are one of the most stubborn weeds, so they can be really tricky to kill. It will likely take you 2 or 3 growing seasons to completely get rid of them. Try not to get discouraged, though, because you’ll start to see results as soon as you start control measures. You can get rid of your thistles using organic methods, organic herbicides, or chemical herbicides.

Plant Specialist Expert Interview. 6 October 2020. Pour household white vinegar into a spray bottle.

  • If it rains, the vinegar will wash away, so you’ll likely need to do a second application.
  • Household vinegar typically has a concentration of 5%, so it's fairly weak.
  • You can buy a 20% concentration of vinegar at a gardening store or online. This formula isn’t safe to consume, but it’s great for killing weeds. It’s typically labeled as “horticultural” vinegar and can kill the thistles in as little as 2 hours. [3] X Research source

Warning: Salt can kill other vegetation around the thistle, and it may also make it hard for plants to grow in the soil in the future. It’s best to use it on individual plants and remove the salt from the soil once the thistle is dead.
