I just got my July edition of The Irish Garden, and I am rather excited by a full-page advertisement for a new Irish product; " Irish Organic Weedkiller".... and I'll be asking my local garden centre to stock it.
www.owk.ie

I'd love to hear from anyone who has already used it.

Another organic method of killing those unwanted weeds is by using hot boiling water. The heat of the hot water when poured on the weeds causes them to shrivel up. I have also seen quite a few people suggest vinegar as a way to kill weeds.

My original post was 3 years ago ! I just googled the product but not much joy and their facebook page has had nothing new added in the last 18 months. Maybe they've gone out of business.

Just a Senior Moment Geranimojess, sure we all have them...... though I noticed my 38-yr-old son had one of those recently which is just a little bit worrying and makes me feel even older........and older......

Organic methods seem to be increasingly popular. Maybe people are beginning to see the many benefits
