This might seem weird but I have a new yard that has a lot of plaintain growing in it. Just for the heckof it I started cutting a few out with my jackknife. Everyone was growing on/next to a small pebble. I started stabbing the ground on every plant and everyone was next to a small rock. This is not a coinsidence as to where the weeds are growing. There is no other weeds in the lawn. Anyone have any idea why the plaintain would start on a small rock like that? The rock are right at the surface or within one inch of the top,

this is a mystery. I recall another story where seeds were cast on to barren rocks and the seeds did not bear forth.

That rock (rock's) might actually be supplying a mineral or substance that is helping the plantain to grow. Find out what it is and then neutralize it.
