instead of spraying i put on a pair of surgical
gloves, i put the roundup mixture in a flat container, put my hand in the liquid
and i apply it my hand on the weeds. It is very precise, and works very well. Of
course, you still must be able to get on your knees and crouch
I usually do it on the Bindweed and it works wonders without using loads of poison

Linda, Going back to last week, you said "With the magic of
Roundup, a few rebloomers are appearing..." How do you use Roundup
around the irises without getting those strange flowers. My neighbor
used it a few years ago and I had some terrible blooms on the plants near his
I ask because I have a terrible crabgrass problem in one
of my iris beds. No matter how much I dig, some still escapes me and it
comes back in full attack.
