Rosate weedkiller

Hi there, I'm a total beginner when it comes to gardening and was advised to get this weedkiller, but how much ml do I put in a 5 ltr watering can?

    150ml - it's VERY strong so don't over soak whatever you're killing

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    And never ever use that watering can for watering your plants. Paint a big skull & crossbones or something on if and put it away until next time you need to use weed killer!!! ⚠️☠️

  • Don't expect to see weeds flopping over after a day or two. You'll find Rosate takes a few weeks to take effect but it is extremely effective.

    Read the instructions on the tub. 
    I’m a little worried if you are a total beginner you are going to use this. If you have weeds you could ask on the forum what they are and how best to kill them.
