veg and poisons question??

Posted: 04/06/2014 at 22:12

I don't think you have need to panic - this sounds as if it was a contact weed killer (such as glyphosate) which will only kill the plants it touches and it's plant killing properties are inactivated on contact with the soil.  

If she'd used the type of weed killer which remained active in the soil and which could therefore spread to other plants would also kill the turf she intends to lay.

Hello folks - I'm back 

OH is in the kitchen and there are lovely smells wafting out - I have a Campari & soda at my elbow 

((hugs)) to those who've had tough days and those who are just tee'd off 'cos they couldn't get into the garden.

I had a lovely day with daughter - it wasn't even raining in Suffolk - it stopped as I reached the border and started again at the same spot on the way home   We visited The Range and I picked up some hedgehog food and a new very healthy looking rosemary so we'll have plenty for porchetta and rosemary potatoes 

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Does the neighbour have pets, children, grandchildren???????????????? 

Although this year I have used a very few of the new Iron sulphate slug pellets, there's no way I would ever consider using them anywhere near where I grow fruit and veg!

Members of my family are big commercial veg growers - seeing the protection their employees have to wear when mechanically spreading slug pellets on their fields is enough to make anyone very wary indeed!!!

HELLO FORKERS!

Lol I've had no problem with slugs at all pellets go over the garden fence and hedges and all over my paths and between my rows of veg every week when we get a break in the rain I attack them. I make sure I throw them down a the hard to reach places too like down the side of my garden sheds. if you stay on top there never a problem just attack them on all fronts and be cheeky throw pellets next door lol 

Do you have any hedgehogs, frogs, toads, birds or other wildlife in your garden at all?
