It’s not rocket science, as they say, to know that a weed is a bad thing in the garden. It’s highly likely to be ugly, and it’s definitely growing in the wrong place. But in addition to these two things a weed causes us a bunch of other problems.
You see, a weed competes with its neighbouring, cultivated plants in several ways – it competes for moisture and nutrients from the soil, and also space and light above-ground.
A sizeable clump of weeds, depending on the type, can choke border plants and cause their demise. Weeds in a veg plot can strangle a row of onions, or smother a row of broad beans. The only place in a garden where weeds are welcome is a wildlife patch.
For most of us therefore, weeds need to be eliminated. So anything that comes on to the market to help gardeners in the quest to be rid of the problem has to be good. This is why I was delighted when Resolva Liquid Shots were launched earlier this year. They are a great way to apply concentrated weedkiller, killing a whole lot of weeds with one ‘shot’.
Each toothpaste tube-like container 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 docks. To help imagine this area, a new car parking system on the pack helps you calculate your garden size, ensuring you buy the most suitable pack size.
Each shot contains just the right amount of weedkiller for a 10L watering can. This means that you don’t have to worry about filling bottle caps with concentrated liquid, and then having to very carefully 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.
One thing – don’t apply the Shots to lawns, or any other plants, unless you want to kill them.
This new weedkiller, along with its 24H benefits, gives a quick and easy solution to the weed problem. I’m sold!
Final tip: Boxes of Resolva Liquid Shots come in 3, 6 or 12 tube versions. But the Resolva 24H Weedkiller itself is also available in 250ml, 1, 3 and 5litre sizes too – really useful if you have a much bigger weed problem.
