seriously?

Sure its cashback? I thought it was a five pound voucher to spend on their other gardening products.

anyone knows if this works ? since the government banned the active ingredient in weedkillers that worked ..I have given up using pathclear and weedall that used to be brilliant before changing the formula. Waste of money now !!

No, it's not actual cash but a £5 voucher for various places e.g Tesco, Homebase, Wilko and several others.

I agree. Bring back Sodium Chlorate! Poundland used to do it at, you've guessed, a £1 a tub.

the good old European Union strikes again. If you look around your street you will notice weeds growing everywhere, down kerbsides, fences, etc this is because there are no active ingredients left in the soil anymore because councils have to use the weaker, non residual stuff.

so with councils having no spare change to pay people to spray the weaker weed killer we shall all be living back in the jungle before long!

rant over

bring back sodium chlorate.

Pretty much all modern weedkillers use the same stuff - glyphosphate. The good ole EU banned anything that might actually work. However, you can still buy Ammonium Sulphamate for use as a compost accelerator. Its banned for use as a weedkiller, so I use it to compost my weeds in situ.....

Just sayin.....

OOS

Get some proper stuff off a farmer friend and it works a treat. Just used farmer strength roundup and everything is dead and gone within 7 days

will be less farmers with the chemicals next yr as the old grandfather rights to buy the chemical is finishing and you have to pass a test to buy/use from then on.

Use common sense and waterproofs/coats/trousers/facemask and dont breathe in the vapours

checked all the bottles in my local store no vouchers on them anywhere

pebrey thank you very much for the tip

The more weedkillers banned the better.

In the future we'll look back and wonder at the madness of the chemicals we pumped into the environment coupled with letting any Tom Dick or Harry buy them.

Stop being so **** and let a few weeds grow. The local wildlife will thank you for it.

bought 2kg of sodium chlorate on eBay came in 4 500g bags for not much money and it works great only problem is need to make sure you have a decent sprayer as it appears to eat cheap ones.

I don't know whether i'm being stupid, but isn't sodium chlorate the chemical name for bleach (NaClO)

thx for the tip... how do you use the compost ecceleratror to kill weeds ie diluted ?? and what brand do you use ?

Sodium chlorate seems to be easily available on eBay.

Buy Rosate 36 from ebay or Amazon it actually works and brilliantly you can't buy it in the shops but go careful it kills EVERYTHING it touches, expect to wait a week before seeing any effect but then it really kicks on, wouldn't buy anything else. It's Systemic just wish I could buy a residual that was as good.

00s

Make your own;

White vinegar, salt and washing up liquid.

Look it up on youtube it works!
Homemade weed killer

that vinegar and soap looks effective so will try that tonight

Residuals likely hounded away by Joe Public 'Ooh weedkillers persisting in the environment!!!'

Glyphosate is effective mind.

http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/pdfs/weedkiller-for-home-gardeners

..lists a good number of common weedkillers and their active ingedients. Lots use glyphosphate, and quite a few use acetic acid, which is (you've guessed it) vinegar.....

Someone asked for the instructions on using ammonium sulphamate as I posted earlier. Basically you dissolve it in water roughly 4 parts water to 1 part powder. Then apply with a watering can. It works better on woody type weeds than others. However I find it more effective than glyphosphate as it has some residual effect. I use it on the drive, and whilst glyphosphate does work, as soon as you killed lot off, the next lot grow, and I for one have better things to do with my life than applying once a month!

Thanks for the tip on buying chlorate from ebay too guys - I never even thought to look - just assumed as it was banned it wouldnt be available. This will probably be more effective than sulpamate.

Finally, theres a certain irony to why these things were banned in the first place. Chlorate was banned as you can mix it with various other readily available ingredients to make explosives. However, chlorate is very easy to make if you can be bothered (see youtube). So if you wanted to make a bomb, and had a bucket at the ready to mix, you only really have one extra step, and lets face it, I cant see the extremists sitting there in a meeting saying "guys, you wouldnt believe it. I went to B&Q and they had nothing..."

Sulphamate was banned because the irish minister asked for further study into its effect on dogs (there is no evidence to suggest it might be harmful). Noone obliged, so rather than telling one guy to shut up and sit down, they implemented an EU wide ban. Gotta love it...
