    🤷‍♂️ cant say bob_z_l its just what they put up on the board. I think it will be hard to prosecute accurately at 72mph specifically. Each county used to be set by its individual chief commissioner a 10% + (whatever they decided)

    We’ve had a bulletin put up at work to warn drivers about these new smart motorways, M1 and M5 i think it is. Max speed will be 72mph, anyone over that will carry an endorsable ticket + fines. When i get to work i’ll take a snap shot and post it up for all you southerners that frequent these areas daily.

    My mate uses “progreen” for marestail, BUT.... if your quick and buy some by end of next week you’ll miss the cut off. Theyre stopping selling to public on 31st jan 19.

    quick acting weedkiller

    I bought some tubs of Clinic ace/gallup before the rules came in last september or whenever it was?? Apply it very carefully in dry conditions, after 3 days the culprits you have treated seem to burst in to life as theyre gasping for their last breath, then usually by 4/5th day theyre brown, wilted and dead! Even got all my marestail under control using it. Its took me about 5yrs but hardly get any popping up now. Do you guys have to produce spraying licences now to buy high percentage based glyphosate products or have you found a different type/brand to go with instead?

Like Spruce Pirate said.... whats a week in your life?!!!
