"I have used this on weed grasses and found it to be effective. It works quite quickly, and when I used it with a low pressure spray, I was careful not to spray the good plants, and had no problem with it. I used it early (before seed set) on Khaki…"

"Not yet Elaine but thanks for the tip. Since the photo, besides getting larger it has also started to develop what look like warts on it's surface. So it is a Galeux D'Eysine variety. This will also need to be protected from fruit fly, as…"

I am interested in:
growing all veges and fruit trees, finding out what to grow, where and when.
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
