Glyphosate weed killer on Ground elder
If you’re looking to buy weed killer online, you’ll find a wide selection in our weed killer section.
Thanks to everyone for helping identify my weeds; this morning I went and bought some glyphosate weed killer from the local garden centre to try and get rid of the ground elder.
I didn’t really want to use weed killer in my garden – anything that says to wash your hands and any exposed skin after use can’t be that pleasant. In fact, if the ground elder hadn’t been between concrete slabs and the fence foundations I think I would have tried to dig it up and risk it returning.
I ended up buying an aerosol tin of the stuff because it looked more accurate than the other spray bottles. I cleared the gravel from around the bottom of the ground elder and sprayed the weed killer right at the base of the leaf stems. I also put bits on the leaves themselves.
Next i had a wash :o). Here’s a photo of the weedkiller, I’ll update you on how long it takes to get rid of the ground elder.
I decided not pot up the other weeds to see what they looked like. There’s a high risk I’ll forget I did it and let them go to seed :o) I spent a bit of time this morning weeding the veg patch. A cold but refreshing half hour.
