Hi all, If any of you Ladies remember Charlie Dimmock , she used to garden in bear hands as well ,but to avoid soil and other debris from getting under her nails she would drag her fingers across a bar of soap so when she washed her hands the soap would dissolve hence clean finger nails . Maybe Carol doe's the same.I hope so.

Hi,Kish, if yo put your weed killer in a large glass container you can immerse the leading shoots of the plants into it and cover to prevent evaporation I do like to use S,B,K ,but you have to be very careful with it .
