Got this on lightning deal for fifteen quid - with weedkiller so expensive nowadays, I thought that wasn't too bad. I must admit that I didn't think it would do ever so well, because of the mixed reviews here on Amazon - and being of the older generation, I am used to the (non-available) stuff that used to work - sodium chlorate for example.
Anyway, I mixed a couple of sachets into just over two litres of water (in a pump sprayer)... gave it a good shake, a good pump and away I went. To make it more directional, I had to have it spraying a little more than I wanted to, so the two litres didn't last that long - but I still got plenty done.
I was mostly trying to tackle the infamous "red weed" we all get - you know, the one that looks a bit like clover leaf, but has little yellow flowers... and it spreads like widfire (by seeds that "pop" everywhere, and running stems that run underground everywhere. I think it is a type of OXALIS. I was also after the speedwell and nettles.
Nothing much happened for a week or so - but I must have got lucky. After application, there was no rain, so it had a good chance to work - and work it certainly did.
I did a second round on all the other red weeds in the path cracks and along the building line (and everwhere else)... and the same thing has happened. Worked a treat. But it is slow to do so, so be patient.
