Jo..........how on earth is it wrong? I accept you have never used glyphosate and I respect you for that .....!!! Or have you?
If you can use glyphosate to suit your purpose then, since it is a useful tool, so can the rest of us.
I hardly use any glyphosate now ...the bindweed here has long been eradicated allowing me now to garden without it. A friend had nettles,,bramble, bindweed etc and glyphosate was a godsend.
i totally agree with hosta......search thoroughly before spraying. Sensibly the overgrown tops would be cut down first and the regrowth sprayed.
I understand glyphosate will be banned soon ....it will make it difficult for weed eradication in future.
(incidentally, twice last week I saw customers at gc buying large bottles of Roundup. On the way out I asked one of them when he intended to use it. "Today" he said. he had no idea it would be useless at this time of year yet nobody at the gc told him that )
