Does anyone know where I can purchase refills (foam) for "Weed Roller", originally manufactured by Green Agritech Ltd of New Zealand, apparently no longer in business? Cant seem to find them anywhere in Ireland, online anyway. Any help much appreciated. I am reluctant to use pesticides but I suffer from a back condition, cant bend or suchlike, so the weed roller was a practical tool for me. Many thanks

Had a quick root around the web. Gone out of business 6 years ago. Couldn't find any company continuing with their spare parts. Say you could be out of luck especially when it is so far away. Did that company have an outlet here or did you purchase out foreign somewhere?

I'm not sure what this weed roller (nice one, Tagwex!) looks like, but if it is a long-handled roller for applying contact weed killer, would it be possible to modify the kind of long-handled roller that painters use for working behind radiators? Their handles are about 60cm long and the rollers are about 10cm. You can get them in foam and sheepskin.
You could mix the weed killer with wallpaper paste to give a suitable consistency.
