    I use Armillatox, to clean patios concrete paths etc, the lawns alongside seem to benefit as well from it, they green up nicely, wouldn't fancy using it around roses, the smell is sweeter mind.

  • black spot is caused by a fungus, so try a fungicide?

  • Hi I have just joined the forum. I considered 2 kinds of disinfectant after losing some seedlings to damping off. After reading the information on both products the only one that claimed to kill fungus (cause of DO) was the Jeyes fluid. So I bought it and mixed a solution to the dilution required to disinfect pots and seed trays. I have been gradually putting all my pots into this bin of solution. How long can I expect this preparation unchanged and used several times over to disinfect seed trays and pots, please. I don't want to use more than necessary. thanks.

    It will be toxic until the last drop. Yea, until the end of time.

    Isn't Jeyes just bleach?

    @gerddi.ephraim I doubt if Jeyes Fluid would be of any help with damping off. There are many threads here that should help if you have that problem and you can find them on the search option. Washing seed trays in hot water before starting is always good husbandry.

    I am not against using Jeyes Fluid for some concreted areas with weeds showing through but now prefer a wire brush. I suppose none of that is any good to the bustling little creatures who get torn to shreds in the process though.
