ROUND UP GARDEN WEEDS
Summer bedding is fading and many plants have past their best. The only thing that's guaranteed to keep on growing are the weeds. Don't despair - as you can kill those weeds without digging. Annual weeds can be treated in a day with Weedol Gun! MAX but bindweed, couch grass, ground elder and other tough weeds need the power of Roundup to kill the roots.
Use Weedkillers carefully - always read the Label and follow the Instructions

people prefer to use a hoe
to avoid using chemicals..
Annual weeds will pop through bare soil ready
to make a mess of your flower bed before you get a chance
to sow flower seed or put out bedding plants. In mixed borders,
weeding with a hoe can sometimes damage shallow rooting plants
and do more harm than good. That's why it can be better to
use a simple contact weedkiller such as Weedol 2 or the ready-to-use
Weedol Gun! (both contain diquat) to clear these first annual
weeds. You can see results in a few days and you can carry
on sowing or planting as soon as the leaves have dried. For
more stubborn weeds use a Glyphosate weedkiller such as Roundup
but understand that it will be slower to kill as it needs
time to penetrate to all parts of theweed.
For those people who prefer not to use traditional chemical
weedkillers there are some new ones on the market that are
based on naturally occurring chemicals. Weedol MAX is one
such new contact weedkiller and contains pelargonic acid,
a molecule found in many plant cells, but when concentrated
and sprayed onto plant leaves becomes a powerful weedkiller.
It's fast-acting, showing visual effects in just a few hours
and kills the weed in a day. So if you want to unleash the
power of nature, look out for Weedol MAX or the ready to use
Weedol Gun! MAX.

Treating gravel drives and paths with a special residual weedkiller will not only get rid of the existing weeds, but will help to prevent newly germinating weed seeds from taking hold for weeks or even months. One simple application of Pathclear Weedkiller PC can stop re-growth for up to 3 months. For larger areas you can buy it in ready-measured sachets that will treat 10 square metres each, or for smaller spot treatments, use Pathclear Gun! for the ultimate in ‘ready to use’ convenience.

Knock Out that Knotweed, tree stumps and other hard to kill weeds
Tough weeds including Japanese knotweed is a devil to get rid of. But Roundup Tree Stump & Rootkiller has a unique application method to kill it, roots and all. In late summer cut back the stems and add 10ml of diluted weedkiller to each hollow stem. There's a pipette in each box to make the application accurate and very effective. Roundup Tree Stump & Rootkiller WORKS FOR TREES AND STUMPS AND ROOTS AS WELL.
Hoe is one of the most useful
Tools in the
garden, particularly for weeding.
It is easy to use and is environmentally friendly.
Simply push the Hoe backwards and forwards
through the soil. This helps break up the soil,
increasing aeration and uprooting weed seedlings.
The weed seedlings dry out and die due to the
root damage. If done regularly weeds never get
properly establishedand die off..
You will need a Sprayer or Watering Can to apply your Weedkiller
I hope you find these information sheets helpful
