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 along...!
I usually do it on the Bindweed and it works wonders without using loads of poison everywhere.

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 field.
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.
Thanks, Jan in Chatsworth
