Many surveys have been taken over the years, asking gardeners about their particular likes and dislikes when it comes to their favourite hobby. And there is one thing that regularly comes top, or very near to it, when asked what they hate most – and that is weeding.
Getting down on hands and knees, and pulling out individual little weeds, is both back-breaking and time-consuming. And a few days later, the bits of roots left behind sprout into growth once again.
Or you can use a hoe to cut weeds off at ground level, trampling on border plants and unseen bulbs as you go. Only for the weeds to regrow the following week.
But weed you must, for weeds are the Devil’s work. Weeds compete with our cultivated garden plants for moisture and nutrients from the soil, and space and light above-ground.
So is there anything out there to make weeding easy – and successful? Of course there is…Resolva Liquid Shots
are a simple but incredibly effective way to apply concentrated weedkiller, for killing a whole lot of weeds with one ‘shot’.
Each box of Liquid Shots bought from the garden centre contains tubes (in boxes of 3, 6 or 12), and each tube contains just the right amount of concentrate to pour into a 10L watering can to be diluted. One tube is sufficient to cover 44sq.m of your garden – if you want to get rid of annual weeds and grasses. Two shots will cover the same area if you are getting rid of tougher perennial weeds such as dandelions and plantains.
Because the tubes have just the right amount of weedkiller concentrate, you don’t have to worry about carefully filling bottle caps, and then having a steady hand to pour it in without spilling it. More importantly, you don’t have to worry about under- or over-applying.
Resolva Liquid Shots contain glyphosate, the ingredient that gets taken in by a weed and is spread throughout it, even down to its roots. It’s fast-acting, too, which is why they come under the ‘Resolva 24H’ branding – meaning that you frequently see results within 24 hours.
If you prefer your weedkiller to come in larger containers, don’t forget that Resolva Powerpump
comes in a 5L size – really useful if you have a much bigger weed problem.
It may seem an obvious thing to say, but it bears repeating: DON’T apply the Shots to lawns, or any other plants – unless you want to kill them! If you're looking for something to kill the weeds in your lawn, choose Aftercut Autumn All in One
