I like using Roundup for killing weeds in my beds, but always afraid I’m going to get some on the good plants! Any tips to help me here?
Yes, and this applies to Roundup, Killzall, Kleenup, etc. – do not use on a windy day. Zero wind – that way you know that the only over spray would come from a lack of accuracy spraying. Keep the spray head close to the plants so you direct the spray directly on what you’re trying to kill. To be even more accurate, take a 2 liter pop bottle or gallon milk jug, cut out the bottom and then place the bottle or jug over the weed. Spray thru the open end (top) and that keeps all spray within the inside of the bottle or jug, and goes directly on the weed. Or use a piece of cardboard and place it between the weed and ‘good plant’ to prevent spray drift. Also, look at the new Roundup ‘Sure Shot’ foam. Its foam – targets the weed and foams around it – good for tight places. Last suggestion – hand weed.
