    Like a few others, we are already spot-treating weeds - you need to be guided by the growing conditions as traditional instructions assume traditional seasons.

    It's been very mild down South, so if there's a massive cold spell soon it will have been a potential waste of time.....Hey ho

  • Hi joe, 

    chemical weed control is always  my last solution but many unwelcome weeds find their way into drives and the cracks between paving.

    most weed killers work best when the application of the herbicide occurs during several days of dry weather.( not much of that around at the moment) plant growth has slowed down this time of year so it takes longer for the herbicide to take hold. I personally try and keep my spraying to Spring and early morning in the summer

    Kind regards Liam, owner and head gardener at heritage horticultural

      Newer formulations of Glyphosate lock-in within 1-2hrs and then rely on temp and growth mode to translocate down the weed and kill it.

      It does not matter then whether it rains a day or two afterwards. This allows you to spray in a tighter, weather affected window. This does not happen on older, "out of patent" formulations which is why they are cheaper......

      It's what makes products such a Roundup Probioctive worth the extra money....

       

      • Spot on. Once a quality commercial spec glypho is absorbed in to the plant, it will kill it regardless of the weather. Just takes a little longer in lower temps. We are spraying in windows of opportunity!

  • thanks very much for the advice on this. Have just bought a  micro wipe weed wiper to get into those places that I dare not spray. Huge excitement!
