Title: What weed killer ?
Post by: pistonbroke on April 15, 2008, 20:21
Hi,
I am a complete novis who has just taken on an allotment. The front of the plot is workable, and I have dug a couple of beds ready for planting, but the trouble I have is the remainder of the plot is heavily over run with weeds, hundreds and hundreds of doc's. What can I use to get rid of these as there is far to many to dig out.

Any advise will be greatfully accepted


Regards

Pistonbroke.

Thanks Aunt Sally

As I said I am a complete novis, Is Glyphogate the cemical name or a trade name ?

Auntie,not wishing to be rude or anything, but have you had a glass or two of something, surely it should be Glyphosate (and I checked the spelling in John'sbook to make sure).  In other words Roundup.

Wighty, it's obvious - Glyphogate is the warning sign which has to be raised when any discussion involves the pro's and cons of the use of the weedkiller glyphosate  8)  :wink:

I'm alright, got loads of Deep Root from Growing Success that I am not allowed to sell to the public now under the new rules, not that I've had a refund from the manufacuterers or anything, but it's always worked for me.

To correct the Mighty Auntie, I really had to pack my bags and be prepared for a long stay, I'll go and unpack now and breathe a huge sigh of relief.
