That new roundup gel

Posted: 03/05/2013 at 12:30

Thanks Fairygirl!  I'll look into that too.......  but is it something you target on like a gel?  As the nettles grow prolifically in between the branches of the blueberries and the rasp canes.....  I couldn't risk using a spray or I'd hit the fruit. 

For other areas on the farm I use Clinic Ace which is very effective but vicious and needs to be used with caution.  Cheers!

I'm going to give it a try - after reading the posts here.  Yours were extremely helpful Gary.  I inherited a huge area of around 100 x blueberry bushes and 50 x raspberries.  It was backbreaking getting them into shape after years of neglect but the dreaded nettles still have a stronghold.  If this targets the weed and leaves the root of the fruits alone I'll be delighted.  I'll report back.
