Anything with Glyphosate in it.

Horrible stuff. Causes cancer. We coat our food in it. Kills plants like billyo.

Just some roundup @MYstIC G. It's got glyphosate in it. Kills the plants hard.

Of course, they grow back. But that's a different thing.

It is very good at killing weeds, it is considered a "probable human carcinogen" but unless you intend to drink it I wouldn't worry.

I personally use boiling water at times.

Fuck that, just as much risk as breathing in the shit air we have. I might try a couple of drops on the bellend for giggles and to ensure it gets a good deep clean :p

"The whole of modern arable farming hinges on using this herbicide".

Yes, it does. And people get very upset for good reasons. One being the farm you're running is a monocultrual biodiversity hellhole and there are other models that can increase yeild, be better for nature and don't use 'em.

Yep, food gets more expensive because we need human input. But until we can get past the mentality which produces chickens cheaper than pints of beer, then we ain't got a hope there.

Also interested in this. We have a drive we need to sort out and a huge front garden we want to redo. So any products would be appreciated.

Scaffolding's finally come off my house, so since April I've had, attic insulation, flat roof insulation, new windows and front door, full external insulation wrap and render. House has gone from a D to a B, and best of all, I no longer have fucking pebble dash on any of the external walls (which is like a plague on all houses built in Ireland until about 1990.)

Now to see if I actually save any money.

Fucking hell pebble dash, immediately think of Emmerdale and Corrie for some reason. Fucking ugly as fuck. Was a grant available to help with any of that?

Everything except the windows (weirdly) had a grant available. I'll get about 25% back overall.

I detest pebble dash; it was also really common in Wales when I was growing up and even as a child I didn't like it. When I moved to Ireland I realised an enterprising pebble dash salesman had roamed the Irish Sea throughout the 1960s and 70s.

At least all the houses in Ireland are immaculately painted @DaGaffer. In the UK the pebble dash looks like it's been painted by literally sticking paint up their arse and 'pebble-dashing' :eek:
