I have been asked by a friend to get rid of dandelions that is growing inbetween her slabs on her patio,

I had a look and she has a lot.

And not alot of room to get out with aweed knife.

Is there aq good weed killer for dandylions?



I am a 95% organic gardener, Scotkat. Part of the five percent is Roundup used in situations like this. Make sure that it does not splash on any other plants or it will kill them also.

Thankyou will need to do this on not a windy day or rain forecast .

So this may be on hold untill weather settles.

Thanks again.

I put a line of table salt along the cracks between my slabs which works a treat at killing weeds but I guess with dandelions Roundup will kill right down to the root.

if not find someone who does homemade wine or a tortoise.
That means not feeding the animals the homemade brew.
Dandielion wine is supposed to be quite nice
