Weed killer

Postby bones » Thu Apr 30, 2009 9:21 pm

Hoping someone can help.....

I have a sprayer but don't want to be forking out for "round up" every time i need to fill it.....can anyone advise of a weedkiller which is effective and reasonably priced - i will be using quite a bit over the course of a year so am happy to buy in bulk.

Simply Build It

You may have sorted this out by now ,however, do you know any farmers? the reason is they have what is known as a holding number which enables them to buy in farm shops etc. I managed to get 1 gallon of neat weed killer with the same constituant, Glyphosate, as Round Up. Then I dilute it 20mls to 1 ltr water It has lasted me years. I think it cost me about £15 recently as I bought some for our allotment society
