Question: How do i apply glogrow slug and snail repellent?
Answer: Our slug and snail repellent doesn’t kill slugs and snails, instead it acts as a barrier to prevent slugs and snails from reaching your plants. The repellent must be applied around the base of the plant in a circle, any gaps will allow slugs to pass through to the plant. Also make sure that there are none already on the plant otherwise they will become stuck on the plant and carry on eating it.
Question: What is the best way to use Weedaway?
Answer: Weedaway is a diluted glyphosate and is an all purpose ready to use weedkiller. It is absorbed by the leaves of the weed and passed into the plant. The best way to kill weeds is to cut a segment off the weed and then spray the re-growth area. As the plant will be moving more nutrients to this area, WeedAway will be more quickly passed around other parts of the plant than if it was sprayed on to an older part of the weed.
Question: Does Reaper STOP growth for up to 6 months or does it just kill whats there..?
Answer: Reaper will completely kill whatever plant it is sprayed on, so the plant will never return. However it will not prevent a new plant from growing. (NB; it can take up to 2 weeks for the plant to die depending on weather etc).
Question: Is Reaper already diluted?
Answer: Reaper is concentrated and must be diluted. The minimum ratio is 1:40 dilution rate. (1 part Reaper to 40 parts water). 5 litres of Reaper will cover 1 Hectare when diluted at a ratio of 1:40 (always read the instructions before use of course!).
Question: What is the shelf life of Reaper?
Answer: According to the label the shelf life is 2 years. After this period glyphosate will start to crystallise.
Question: Can Reaper be used on Thistles and Nettles?
Answer: Reaper can be used on thistles and nettles as per the label. The concentration can remain the same as per normal other usage.
Question: I have 500ml of Reaper left over from last year. It has been stored at a temp of 10C in an igloo box, the contents has gone very cloudy with heavy sediment present. Is this still OK to use?
Answer: Top up the 500ml you have with 500ml of warm (not hot) water. If the solution clears this is fine to use.
Question: What is Hydroponics?
Answer: Hydroponics in its most basic form means working water. Although hydroponics seems like a new method for growing plants, the use of such techniques can be traced back to the hanging gardens of Babylon, and the floating gardens of the Aztecs.
Hydroponics have a number of positive aspects over traditional growing methods including:
The ability to produce higher yields.
Allowing food to be grown in areas that cannot support crops in the soil.
Removing the need for large amounts of pesticides through the removal of soil based pests.
