Thanks petervanh. Thank you so much.
I have tended to hold back from posting much about glysophate. Since joining this forum, I have constanly read time and again. Glysophate.. The last thing I wanted or wish is to offend any members. From what you say peter, the full circle has come about. Some years back, actually soon after the start of the EU & Common Market. That glysophate was banned from public use. Only professional bodies could obtain and use it. Eventually a modified form hit thye market. To be honest, a very watered down variant of glysophate. That is why in most cases, a single spraying will not do the trick. Were you to be in the commercial world, then. A small drop of the real stuff, would clear the average garden in one go. Most of us prefer not to use chemcals in the garden, for fear of harming wildlife etc. As most agree, certain invasive plants, docks, bindweed, ground elder and many more. For the average gardener they are a pest. As Bob said. Even leaving behind a tiny piece of root etc. From a scientific point. Gardeners will never be able to go out and buy a can of whatsit and rid the garden of weeds etc. Today there are so many conservation groupes etc, and thankfully many including scientists have realised that in their attempts to solve some of these problems. We have taken one step forward and two back.
