Bio , a picture of some raised beds at allotment , the boxs are good as you can put fleece or nets across top , e.g. Great for carrots, no carrot fly 

Hoping to go to plot on Saturday to put in first early potatoes

Esther , hello , we have bark chipping paths and use path clear on them 

Didn't want to use weed killer on plot but to help us get started we did spray sections with Glyphosate weed killer and it did help 

Still use it on side of road ways other side of our fence to help keep them down 

Also have noticed some of the cheaper ones are just as good as the more well known ones and a lot cheaper , just check the percentage of glypostate 

We tend to buy out of season in the sale , so stocked up just before Christmas , a lot cheaper that way 

Best of luck with digging 

Picture shows paths I was on about
