Recommended Posts

Hi it was for north norfolk concill on the cliffs near Cromer SSSI site so no spraying we all got a tick a check and the theory is if you crush the stem not cut it the sap bleeds out so the risom is weeken over time sorry about the spelling

I've done my first bashing this year and the results are better so far than glyphosphate. Which I've learned needs to be sprayed in August when the sap is going back to the roots. Not pushing upwards. But that's too late for the trees which are shaded out by then.

Afraid I use a tractor though.
