„Hemp and marijuana should be regulated like onions. No difference. If you can grow onion in your backyard, you can grow hemp or weed in your backyard. If you can grow onions in your farm, your family farm, you can grow help or marijuana in your family farm.“
An Humorous Day's Mirth; reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

„Religion acts as a moral gardener, to weed out, or suppress, evil tendencies, which, like weeds: grow.“

Roundup Optima+ and Weedol RootKill Plus are systemic weedkillers. Systemic weedkillers are designed for tough as well as all round weed killing. They kill from the inside out – right down to the deepest root so weeds can’t re-grow.
The gel formulation sticks to the weed leaf and stays there, so there’s no dripping or running off onto the soil or surrounding plants. Simply click the button and apply all the gel that appears across the weeds leaves, then in the following days you will start to see the weed die off – Simple!
Weedkillers are best sprayed in the evening when it’s cooler. This gives maximum time for the chemical to be absorbed and ensure good results.
3. Weed on a dry and sunny day
Blistered hands and aching backs are common complaints after digging or hoeing. Sometimes it is not only the gardener who is damaged. Digging and hoeing can damage the roots of wanted plants, reducing their vigour and encouraging the formation of suckers.
In order to get the best performance from any weedkiller, we would always advise to apply the product when the weather is fair and not to apply in windy conditions. Do not apply if rain is expected within 6 hours of application as this could reduce the efficacy of the product.
Keeping weeds under control isn’t always a question of digging or spraying. A physical barrier (called a mulch) will also help to prevent weed seeds from germinating. This light-excluding layer on the soil surface can be of gravel, bark chippings or easily obtained organic matter.
2. Use a gel weedkiller such as Roundup Gel
Gravel is suitable for alpine beds or the surface of sink gardens but is expensive for large areas. Black polythene, on the other hand, is cheap but unsightly. The best product for mulching is bark chippings or cocoa shells. They suppress the growth of weeds and at the same time deter the movement of slugs and snails. Above all they allow rainwater through to plant roots but reduce surface evaporation.
these concentrated systemic weedkillers can be applied either through a watering can or a pressure sprayer (check pack details for application methods) and are biodegradable. Children and pets need not be excluded from treated areas once the product has dried.
