Re: CULT: Herbicide

>Ummm, no.  What's "gorse"?
>Dennis Kramb

You might know it as Furze. It is an extremely prickly shrub, and a 
noxious weed. It was introduced by our English ancestors, for 'growing' 
fencelines, which were impenetrable to livestock, or predators. It is 
about as difficult to remove as Blackberries (brambles?. It is a 
reasonably attractive bush, with yellow pea flowers, and is still 
tolerated in areas where it is used as a hedge, and the sheep and cattle 
keep the young growth nipped back.
In the front 'lawn' I keep it under control by mowing, and the young, 
light green growth, is attractive. If you dig it out, you have to get 
every single tough little piece of root, or it grows back in quantity.

a gorse is a gorse of course, of course
and no one would walk on a gorse of course   :)
