I performed a little demonstration the last few weeks which I thought you might be interested in seeing. So here it is:
I took a little weedy spot of land out in the nursery and divided it into four sections. Three weeks ago I applied Round-up to one of the sections and vinegar to another. Then, a few days ago, I applied vinegar (again) to the third section and Round-up (again) to the fourth. Then yesterday I took pictures of all four sections. I conducted this little experiment so that I could demonstrate to a group what happens over time after you apply these chemicals. The results are below.
Above is the Round-up treatment a week or so after application.
And here’s the Round-up after three weeks.
The Vinegar after a few days.
And the vinegar after three weeks.
Vinegar is great for little weeds, but boy oh boy, once they grow up, vinegar just doesn’t do it.
