Is it national or store specific?. If so what store?
Always use this myself, will cover many times the area of round up all with the same active ingredient (Glyphosate). I bought a bottle 4 years ago and still have over half left. Needs to be mixed and used with a sprayer or watering can. ebay.co.uk/itm…275

Don't drink it then. Problem solved!
I take it that this will be no good for dandelions on the lawn? I've spent hours trying to dig some up out over the past few days. Any suggestions for a quicker way to remove dandelions from the lawn? Thank you.

Weedkiller for lawns. Something like verdone etc. Put it in a pressure sprayer and treat the whole lawn, or use it in a hand sprayer and spot spray the weeds. Apparently verdone is now called weedol for lawns. You could use glyphosate, but you would need to carefully paint it on the leaves of unwanted weeds in the lawn. Neither of the are instant, you have to wait for results, a week or so.

Dandelion leaves are a cheap and nutritionous salad leave. I would suggest eating them.

Otherwise just mow your lawn and that'll keep the dandelions in check.

Don't waste money purchasing poison like this that has more effects on the environment than the manufacturers would have you believe.

Problem is dandelions grow close to the lawn. You may be able to mow the flower spike but eventually your lawn will be covered in dandelions.

As jobibear observed there's plenty of evidence to suggest glyphosate causes cancer or allows cancer to establish and develop when it might not otherwise. As ever these days, there's an ongoing battle between money makers and environmentalists to try to establish a truth - one side with a vested material interest, the other with a vested interest to improve the planet for all of us. Know which side I'm on. My partner almost died from cancer - I take it seriously. I'm not saying glyphosate was implicated in his case, but we do whatever we can to reduce the risk of recurrence. I have glyphosate I naively bought years ago - not been touched. My problem now is how to get rid of it safely - I'm skeptical about local recycling processes. For those with a critical mind, have a read of this letter by Marion Copley, an eminent scientist who worked for the Environmental Protection Agency and herself died of cancer. She was convinced glyphosate caused cancer. Her letter offers a rational and heartfelt protest against this insidious chemical:

Why do we need to have this debate every time someone posts a deal for weedkiller? *yawn*
I wouldn't touch Roundup as you can see via the leaked company emails that they know its carcinogenic and are trying to suppress it.

Also I am sure California just passed a law to make them change the label next year to show its carcinogenic.

in the hope that people like you will see a bigger picture. Hotukdeals does a decent job at highlighting bargains. But sometimes a price is never worth paying when the bigger picture consequences are so extreme. I'm trying to encourage some critical thinking on the part of people who consider this product. If all you can see is a dicussion eliciting a 'yawn', that is the part of the problem. I do wonder why you should have such an indifferent reaction if you've fully read my post and Copley's letter. How can you be indifferent to something for sale to the public when there is plenty of evidence it is carcinogenic?

​Absolutely agree. What if some posted a cluster mine on here because it was cheap. I'd bloody well hope someone would point out the real and present dangers of owning, using and supporting the manufacturing of such a terrible product. Same rules apply.

Because i's a discussion forum. That means people point out why they think deals might be bad. It could be food products tasting lousy, pries being too high, or garden products probably having the ability to kill you.

I didn't know Roundup was probably carcinogenic so I'm grateful for this informaton and wishing I'd been a bit more careful when I used it liberally a few years ago.

Thanks for that - I have ordered it as for £26 you get 250 litres of weed killer.
Don't fret too much, can't find any available within 50 miles anyway. Can you?

Probably, if you get it early enough. You need to spray the green growth. No good spraying 'woody' growth. Another idea! I know with Japanese knotweed they cut it back but then squirt glyphosate into the hollow stems, may work with bamboo. Just a guess. Try Google.

"Eradicating unwanted growth

To ensure you only kill unwanted growth, first sever the underground rhizomes from the parent plant with a garden spade
Apply a tough formulation of glyphosate (e.g. Scotts Roundup Ultra, Bayer Garden Rootkill Weedkiller, Bayer Garden Super Strength Weedkiller or Doff Maxi Strength Glyphosate Weedkiller) to the foliage of the section you want to kill. Alternatively, cut canes to ground and treat with a stump and root killer containing glyphosate (e.g. Scotts Roundup Tree Stump & Rootkiller, Bayer Garden Tree Stump Killer, Doff Tree Stump & Tough Weedkiller and Westland Deep Root Ultra Tree Stump & Weedkiller) or triclopyr (Vitax SBK Brushwood Killer). Treat foliage of any regrowth
Consider replanting the original clump, or a division of it, inside a physical barrier to prevent future spread. See the bamboo profile for more information on physical barriers

Eradicating the whole plant

With very tall bamboos, which can be difficult to spray, cut down canes to soil level in late winter and then apply a glyphosate-based weedkiller (e.g. Scotts Roundup Ultra, Bayer Tough Rootkill, Bayer Garden Super Strength Weedkiller or Doff Maxi Strength Glyphosate Weedkiller) to the young growth in late spring and early summer. Several treatments may be needed
Alternatively, cut canes to ground and treat with a stump and root killer containing glyphosate (e.g. Scotts Roundup Tree Stump & Rootkiller, Bayer Tree Stump Killer, Doff Tree Stump & Tough Weedkiller and Westland Deep Root Ultra Tree Stump & Weedkiller) or triclopyr (Vitax SBK Brushwood Killer). Treat foliage of any regrowth"

I think all these weedkillers in the previous post are all containing glyphosate, just varying strengths (if at all). Best and most economical way to buy is purchase concentrate (360gl) and mix as wanted.
