  • Oh I meant to say I mixed it up a bit stronger that stipulated maybe 30ml per Litre I’m not sure if that is required, I looked up on the web and can’t see any reference to anybody else using it but it worked for me

  • Yes, some selectives do work on horsetail. As you say, they can work out a little pricey though
  • Hi Wilkinsons hardware ( are selling Weedol Lawn Weed Killer for £8 for 500ml but it does last a while as the recomended ratio is 15ml to a litre for spraying and that works on the lawn fine I use it stronger when dealing with Marestail maybe 20ml to 30ml per liter but I suspect it would work with the 15ml its only that I dislike this pest so much as it was taking over my garden. Ill try using the quoted mix and see if that works as I have some in my lawn.
  • Hi Baza have you tried the Weedol Lawn Weedkiller yet just curious to see if it worked for you
  • Nothing more satisfying than seeing this in a weedy lawn.
