Have used this on a garden bed where we have removed a hedge and invading grass. Very little remaining roots of either.......how long should I wait before planting new shrubs to this area?
Sounds like a common problem - instructions behind the pel off label have stuck together or disintegrated, and no instructions re-mixing ratio on the label or anywhere on the net. It shouldn't be this hard. What is the mixing ratio for Weed Killer for Buffalo Lawns please??
Samuel M, the ratio is 5 - 10 ml per 1 litre. I'd advise you to use 10 ml to 1 litre of water.
I downloaded the Hortico weed killer 360 PDF a few years ago because the print on the label
was to small to read. Just don't apply if rain is forecast within 6 hours of spraying your grass.
Hope this helps.
How long must I keep my dog away from weeds I sprayed with your product? Answer quickly please
When is it safe for your dog to eat weeds that has been sprayed with your weed killer
Will it kill couch grass
Definitely, just apply 15ml of hortico 360 Weed Killer to 1 litre of water and spray.
If you're asking about Hortico Weed and Feed, it will only kill your weeds but will stress your couch or any grass for that matter, so be very careful with it especially in hot and sunny weather. If you only want to kill weeds then use a selective weed control such as Yates bindii and clover killer from Bunnings. Just read and follow the instructions.
Hope this helps out.
I sprayed Hortico Bindii & Clover killer (Hose On) on my Buffalo Turf by accident. Turf is suffering. Will it destroy my turf or will Buffalo recover.
I have an old style Buffalo grass lawn, my major problem is Sour Sob which comes up through part of my buffalo lawn every winter & is now in progress of dying back for the summer. It spreads at a very fast pace. Managed to dig out a very young one so I know what the root system looks like, with a very long tap root ending with a fine hair attached to a flat pear shaped dark brown bulb, tap root has side roots with many bulblets attached to them. So can't be dug out. I have a Grevillea in the vicinity of some of it.
Tried Slasher on part of it, knocked it over within the hour, has come back up a again, but not feeling happy, buffalo regenerating. Will your Weedkiller, suitable for Buffalo lawns help?
also Onion weed, will it work for that too. Have a lot, will putting it down the centre of the Onion weed work? Thanks for your help.
Try using a selective weed killer such as Hortico 500ml Selective Weed Killer For Buffalo Lawns or Yates 250ml Buffalo Pro Weed Killer from Bunnings. Just read the instructions carefully.
If you use Slasher, Hortico 360 Weed Killer or Round Up, you will kill your lawn. You may have to be patient with this type of weed.
Hortico 360 Weed Killer or Round Up will kill onion weed, but it will also kill your lawn, Don't try pulling them out, seeds are attached to the bulbs and stay in the soil only to sprout up again. Hope that helps you out.
How does this compare to roundup and how long until you see results as it doesn't seem to be killing the weeds I sprayed its been 4 days I also used weed & feed on lawn and that seems to of started working already after 4 days when it says may not see results until upto 3 week ?
after mixing with water how long will it be active before it looses its strength to kill weeds
I have all sorts of weeds in my buffalo lawn due to me being ill for the last couple of months of winter and not giving my lawn any care. Would Hortico weed killer be suitable if I just mix it in a watering can and cover the lawn and weeds. Regards
No, Big Al, Hortico weed killer is for getting rid of weeds around pathways, edges, and so on. So just pouring Hortico weed killer on your lawn will just kill everything - the weeds, the lawn; everything.
If you want to kill just the weeds and leave the lawn fairly much intact, get a "weed 'n' feed" type product and apply that instead.
